Cranfield Speakers meeting notes for 25th April 2012

Last Wednesday saw several debut appearances for the various meeting roles – in line with our ‘First Time’ themed evening!

Daniel P was TM and Jim told us a golfing joke; Hemant shared with us What Makes a Successful Entrepreneur; Victor got to the point of How to Launch a Social Epidemic; and our guest, Gayna inspired us all with her competition speech entitled Heads or Tails, taking questions as part of her evaluation slot.

Thanks to Daniel P, Emily, Laura, Daniel S, Jim, Xiaojian, Becky, Atul, Louise and Nils for taking on responsibility through roles and helping this enjoyable meeting run smoothly! Our word of the day was ‘staggering’.

Awards: Best Speaker and Best Humour went to Victor, Best Evaluator to Nils and Best Table Topic to both Becky and Yiorgos.

Farewell and best wishes to Nils who is off to an exciting new role in Germany. Keep in touch, Nils!

20 attended with 3 guests.
