Yesterday, we did not only enjoy a great Toastmasters Seville Session but we lived a moving and memorable moment.
Our fellow Álvaro Rodríguez gave a heartfelt speech to us about an event that changed his life. It was a courageous testimony, acknowledged with a large applause by all of TOASTMASTERS Sevilla members.
Thank you, Álvaro, for sharing it with all us. You are the living example of COURAGE.
En la sesión de esta semana Toastmasters Sevilla ha estado arropando a Gonzalo Azaña, ganador de SOFE España (Speak Out for Engineering ). Hemos colaborado ofreciéndole nuestro feedback, ya que próximamente será el candidato al título europeo.
Speak Out for Engineering es un concurso diseñado para ayudar a desarrollar la comunicación verbal y visual entre ingenieros nóveles. Se basa en una presentación oral sobre un tema relacionado con la ingeniería mecánica. Esta exposición tiene una duración máxima de 20 minutos. Posteriormente, hay 10 minutos adicionales para discusión y preguntas de los jueces.
SOFE está organizado por organizado por Institution of Mechanical Engineers – IMechE Iberia Group.
Nos ha encantado cooperar con Gonzalo y con el presidente de la asociación de alumni de la institución, José María Garteiz.
¡Mucha suerte Gonzalo! ¡A por ese título europeo! Toastmasters Sevilla está contigo. La semana que viene seguiremos practicando el discurso.

In Brussels, I recently had the opportunity to visit BLACK FOREST TOASTMASTERS, a German-English bilingual club funded in 2006.
I want to thank all the Black Forest Toastmasters´ members their welcome; THANK YOU! I felt part of the group. It was great fun to participate in improvisations and a big challenge to accept the grammarian role.
For those who still do not know it, I should mention that it is possible to visit the clubs within the Toastmasters International network and participate in their meetings. It is an enriching experience and a great way to meet people from other cities or countries who share the interest in improving communication and leadership skills.
Another aspect that called my attention was the fact that their meetings are bilingual German-English. They use both languages to an equal degree. Each participant chooses the language to communicate. It is a great fun as well as a good exercise to improve the English or German practice.
I enjoyed the experience and I want to visit them again next time I go to Brussels.
Greetings to all
