This regular meeting featured some interesting and somewhat unique speeches. First up was President Marcel Admiraal with a speech about machine learning for CC#7 (evaluated by Mikael Koskela). Next up was veteran speaker Yi Liu who gave the audience a glimpse into ancient China (evaluated by Fu Xiang), as part of the first project in his Advanced Communicator: The Storyteller. The Table Topics session was a blast as well, with some brave new faces giving spectacular performances.
In the first meeting of the new academic year, old members congregate once more to relive the spirit of public speaking. There were familiar faces, as well as some new faces, some of which were featured on the Table Topics session. And presenting a speech was Immediate Past President James Semple, who voiced some thought-provoking opinions about education and creativity these days.
