[CCTMC] Meeting minutes on July 9

 Dear CCTMCers, 

Cathy Chen started the meeting by telling us that she will run Marathon in Beijing on July 18 to raise money to support educational opportunities for young girls. This is part of Spring Blossom Project, and Cathy aimed to raise at least RMB 1200 which is enough to support one girl!

So dear friends, please show your kindness, social responsibility to donate to Cathy as she will regard this as support and motivation for her to run 44.2 KMs!

What made this meeting more special is that we have three guests and all of them are from other distinguished toastmaster clubs! We welcome our colleagues from other clubs since we believe cross-pollination will create a win-win for us.

Our table topic master, Everlyn, developed several topics all related to the charity marathon. Waves were running in heavy rains and he successfully convinced his runmate not to quite. Norma faced a dilemma, she need to determine whether she should donate the money to a poor girl for education or a girl with cancer to save her life. By a touching speech, she successfully switch the situation from win-lose to a win-win. Michael gave a motivational talk to the girl he support by telling her “no pain, no gain” and “be honest”. Last but not least, Felix used his speech and charm to persuade a mother to invest the education of her daughter.

In the 2nd half of the meeting, Jannet told us how to build a good habit of sport! She has tried yoga, but did not work out since she could not give up free lunch to free sport! Finally she started jogging and have persisted for a year. Her advice is to select a suitable sport, and stick to it, and a sportmate is very important for the persistence. Next, Cathy Zhao gave a speech “Carry your initial target”. She believe there are three kind of “stones” which act as barriers to us against reaching our goal – big boulders which is difficult to overcome, stones which makes us focus on getting rid of them, and colorful pebbles which attract us and make us forget our initial goal. Her suggestion is that we need always bear our goal in mind. Finally, our superstar, Rosie is trying to sell a Miphone to Jerri who is an iphone-fan. By asking insightful questions Jeri seems to be convinced to have a try on Mi-phone.

What a fascinating evening!
