Change Over Night – Wednesday 27th June 2012, 6.45pm

This is a special night with a special theme: Olympic games.

We celebrate the achievements of the club in the last year (2011/2012) and welcome the new committee into the new year. The format of this night is slightly different to our meetings and we will have dinner with some impromptu speaking activities as well as a couple of prepared speeches.

It’s a dress up night too. Wear your favorite Olympic outfit. Have fun with it and don’t be shy. We want to enjoy this night and make the most out of it. We urge you to arrive before 7.00pm to organise a drink at the bar and take your seats for a start at 7.00pm. As usual, we meet at the San Remo Hotel in San Remo.

If you are coming along to this night, please contact us (Cheryl on 0427 700 270) and let us know, how many people and which menu you are choosing:

  • Medallion Chicken Breast filled with Fetta & Roasted Pepper Strips – topped with Tzatziki  and served with Potato and Vegetables (celebrate with Dessert: Apple & Berry Strudel)

Meeting No 424 – 13th June 2012

In the hopes of reaching the moon men sometimes fail to see the flowers that blossom at their feet.      Albert Schweitzer

Albert Schweitzer - an inspiring figure!

How beautifully described by Albert Schweitzer. Albert Schweitzer OM Order of Merit (14 January 1875 – 4 September 1965) was a German and then French theologian, organist, philosopher, physician, and medical missionary.

At Southcoastspeakers we don’t only practice our public speaking, communication and leadership skills, we also learn from others. For instance, Albert Schweitzer could be the topic of one of your prepared speeches and hence, every one that will be present, will learn about it as well. It’s wonderful, because it’s not only entertainment and fun, but it’s also good for broadening the horizon.

We found that other people inspire us most to both – achieve and succeed!

Our next meeting is tomorrow, Wednesday at 7.30pm sharp at the San Remo Hotel, San Remo, VIC, Australia.

We can’t wait to meet you!
