On February 8, 2014, a group of Renaissance Speakers (Hollywood) traveled to Las Vegas to put on a demonstration meeting for a new Toastmasters club forming at the Church of Scientology & Celebrity Centre in Las Vegas, NV.
A demo meeting is a shortened and modified Toastmasters meeting designed to demonstrate the components of a typical Toastmasters meeting. The purpose of the demo meeting is to illustrate the benefits and value of Toastmasters to a group of potential members of the forming club.
Renaissance Speakers Las Vegas is the project of Sue Zenger, former and longstanding member of Renaissance Speakers Hollywood. After generating local interest and creating a desire for a new club, Sue enlisted the support of several of our members to help put on the demo meeting: Roberta Perry (Meeting Toastmaster), Debbie Ellish (Club Coach), Jeff Harman (Speaker), Susan Stewart (Coach), and Richard Stewart (Coach).
The meeting was a huge success! 17 members have signed up and the group should reach the Charter strength of 20 within a few days. The date of the Charter meeting will be announced soon.
With this new addition, RS Hollywood continues its quest to create a Renaissance Speakers Toastmasters Club within every ScientologyChurch worldwide. RS Sydney was established in 2006 while RS Clearwater was chartered in 2007.
