On May 26 2006, Mannheim International Toastmasters Club was chartered. Thanks to everyone filling our club with life throughout those 10 years, thanks to all the club officers keeping it going, and congratulations to us all for reaching this milestone!
In the lead-up to the Spring Contest season, we present an interview with our club member and big star of the Fall Contest Season, District 95 Champion of German Language Table Topics, Martin Sturm. Martin has been a long-time member of our club, club president and area governor.
Thanks for agreeing to this interview. First of all, congratulations again for your victory. I guess the first question should be – though I am not sure if that can be definitively answered for Table Topics, being impromptu – “How did you do it?”
As the Bürgerhaus Neckarstadt is closed for their annual holiday, we shall meet in the park around the Wasserturm instead for an outdoors meeting.
Please bring your own drinks, and in case we cannot secure benches, a blanket or a beach towel to sit on the lawn.
In case of bad weather, Jazzmin, who lives nearby, has kindly agreed to host us.
Please see the image below for our currently planned location.
