Say your Piece was set to help members with their confidence and to influence them into using their voice to succeed. We had two amazing speakers join us; award-winning motivational speaker/author Hayley Mulenda and poet/author Ismael Musoke. They both shared inspirational stories about their journeys, highlighting some of the challenges they faced and gave advice on public speaking. At the end of the event both authors personally signed books for those who attended, but most importantly they networked and connected with our members.
Month: October 2016
The Open Minds Meet and Greet was the kick start of our events, where freshers and returners came together to meet the new 2016-2017 Committee, understand what we do as a society and take part in all our fun activities. Our aim was to give people a taste of what Open Minds is about – giving students the opportunity to better themselves through activities and our various workshops, such as the public speaking workshop. The Meet and Greet was arguably our most important event, as it reflects the genuine and supportive persona of the committee as well as the events we have in store for the rest of the year. Those who attended described the meet and greet as a success, representing the society and committee positively.
