Bangalore SHG Meet up July 29, 2012 report




Attendees - Mayank, Sairam, Rohit, Pradeep, Karthik, Jeetu, Chandan, Alok, Dinesh kadam, Anubhu, Praveen, Nishil, Chandra Shekhar, Thenaralu, Dinesh And myself Abhinav

                 Today was another great meet up with 16 attendees, highest number so far in Bangalore SHG :). We decided to go with formal and toastmasters style meet up today. We assigned role of 'Timer' (for keeping track of time), 'Grammarian' (for keeping track of grammar related mistakes by speakers) and 'Counter' (for keeping track of Ummm, actually, I mean etc sounds and helping words) to 3 participants.


                 We started with prepared speeches. Chandan, Chandra Shekhar and Dinesh Kadam gave prepared speeches. Jeetu, Karthik and Mayank were assigned role of evaluators for evaluating prepared speeches given by participants. 

                  After that we had 'Table Topic' session for the first time in Bangalore SHG meet up. In table topic session one has to speak for 2-3 minutes to the random question asked. Some of questions asked were

(a) How long you want to live and why ?
(b) How and for what do you spend your money ?
(c) Which was the last book you read ?

                 Table topic session was really good. We stammer a lot when some one asks question all of sudden and encountering this situation in SHG will really help us. After that we had 5 minutes break and started with 2 minute introduction of all participants.

                  In last Mr Timer, Mr grammarian and Mr A Counter gave reports of all participants speeches. Meet up ended with beautiful songs by Karthik, Dinesh Kadam and Rohit and agenda for next meet up. See you guys on Aug 5.

Table Topics said...

Great Table Topic questions! Particularly like “How long you want to live and why?” While it is quite a deep question, it still gives the person answering the option of giving a funny answer instead i.e. I might want to live long enough to see England win the World Cup, in which case I might live forever!

It is also great that you have musicians and take time to enjoy live music at the end of the meeting. Do you have food? I might come over!
