POWERtalk Pollokshields AGM 4th April 2016

On Monday the 4th April we held our usual meeting followed by our AGM and were delighted to welcome Brendan Keenan, a former club members, as well as two guests who are university students from Morocco studying in Glasgow and wishing to improve their English speaking and presentation skills.

President Brendan B welcomed everyone to the meeting and then handed over to the Programme Chair Scilla who led a lively Topic session on the Birds and Bees which was our theme for the evening.

Anita led an  Education Session on choosing a team for a project and all the various types of people that ideally you would need to make up that team.

Following that Iris gave us a wonderfully evocative and funny speech on how adults broach sex education with the young, or not as the case may be!

After a tea break we held the Club's AGM, read all the reports  and nominated and elected our new Board  for the next season.  The new Board will be installed at a later meeting.

Our next meeting will be held on the 25th April 2016 in the Loggia Room at the Pollokshields Burgh Hall and the topic for the evening is  "Tiptoe through the Tulips".
