Inspiration night

Im a big fan of TED talks and motivational speakers, this is an event you do not want to miss. The Inspirational speech night is coming up, come and see the most inspiring speakers in the city competing for the title (best speaker in the city). We can go for dinner before or after based on interest. We'll be going to this event with friends from Young Professionals Career Networking

-------

Imagine attending a speech competition where you have the best speakers in the city . People would pay couple hundred to watch a inspirational speaker talk for an hour, here you get to watch a similar quality for only the price of a coffee!

Inspirational Speech Competition:

Come and be wowed with an evening of inspiration as you hear the best speakers in the city share their ideas worth spreading.

    I might not be able to come afterall and this time it's for a good reason, my thoat isn't doing that great and have partly lost my voice. I have to do a few things outside the house so i'll see how I feel after getting back. I'll change my RSVP and if I can make it, i'll just show up.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
