Charting the Course TME Script : June 14, 2015

TOASTMASTER’S SCRIPT

 
 

  • Thank you so much my dear TM charlotte for that heart-warming introduction. Indeed, it makes me more excited to host tonight.

***

  • Ladies and Gentlemen! This is your captain speaking. Welcome aboard! Mabuhay! Good evening Fellow Toastmasters!

You have been hearing these lines many times when you ride on a plane or ship. What does the captain do? He will make sure you would have and enjoyable and safe ride!

Tonight, I will be the captain to chart out this TOASTMASTER MEETING as we bring you the fun on course of learning to be a great leader and speaker. So what are you waiting for! Sakay na!

***

  • Charting the course …

In English, when we say a word or phrase we tend to give two meanings – figurative and literal.

Literally speaking, we come to imagine a maritime navigation. In which the captain would look at charts of the sea and decide on a course for the ship.

It is a metaphor of life…

Figuratively, it means … we lay out a plan or course in achieving something. It is our way of doing things to reach our goals.

As William Ernest Henly, echoes of life and death, I quote,

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.”

  • So, tonight… before we begin our meeting proper, let’s honor first our real captain of our life, our almighty God who charts out our life even from the day we were born and renew our allegiance to our country. This part of the program will be led by TM may Camus, CC. I’d like to invite everyone to please stand.

(Invocation and national anthem proceeds…)

  • Thank you so much TM May. We are very glad to have a number of guests in the house tonight. A warm welcome once again to our non-tM guests and our friends from other TM clubs who are here to assist us, welcome and we hope that you are enjoying tonight’s cruising… We are so honor to have you here.

Thank you so much TM dave for the very insightful evaluations. I am sure everyone here including me took note of the valuable things that our evaluators told us.

Every journey has come to an end after it reached to its destination so as our club meeting tonight.  We have successfully arrived after charting the course because we know where to go and how to do things.

Closing:

If you don’t know where you are going. Any road will get you there. This may be an old saying but it still is true. If we don’t have goals, we will have no means by which to measure our success. This is true even in communication and leadership. I would like to congratulate the officers for charting the course for this tm year. This has been captain TM maricel saying Chart your own course of life now!
