Brands and branding was our topic. Our Toastmaster, Julia Burge (DTM), showed us the amazing underlying need for which branding originated: in farming to identify ownership, to differentiate, as a form of identification. Interestingly, people value brands for many of the same reasons today.
Julia also brought us quizzes. First, guessing the five brands on her attire –for which Kathy Branconier (CC, CL) guessed rightly. Second, two grids with thirty-six logos each to guess the brand names –for which Emily Wratschko and Jamel Wong obtained the highest results. Congratulations branding masters!
Julia –who demonstrated her professional leadership and group management skills—successfully conducted the meeting and was voted Best Program Manager. Congratulations, Julia!
