This is how the the 2012 Gala was reported in the Kwanza Kenya Toastmasters News letter.
Lights, Camera, Action
23rd June 2012….this was the day when Toastmasters and their esteemed guests were treated to an unforgettable evening. The year’s Annual Dinner was simply scintillating!
The gala was hosted at the Intercontinental Hotel & the Guest speaker was the talented June Gachui – an advocate, a thespian, a singer and an entrepreneur to boot. June thoroughly connected with her audience, she held us captive with her delivery and most of all, inspired us to greatness! She is a star performer!
Wangu Wachira (Kwanza Kenya TM) & Carol Kariuki (Nairobi TM), the MCs of the evening were excellent. The quiz ace David Gray Kimaru did not disappoint with his mind boggling quizzes. The table topics speakers demonstrated that it is possible to think and speak with a full mouth. The joke master, well let us say that the only people not laughing were those who were in stitches. The poet, the guitar players and the song birds made it all more memorable.
The 3 speakers of the evening, including an impromptu speaker, reminded the audience that public speaking is a must for all.
On the deck was the experienced DJ mentored by the famous DJ Babbz who did not disappoint. Lucky raffle winners smiled all the way home with amazing gifts from our sponsors and partners including two nights for two at the Amboseli Serena Lodge. All in all, it was a wonderful evening!
Hats off to the organizing committee and thank you for helping us close the year with such aplomb.
