Teaming up to discuss “Teamwork”

The meeting on the 9th of May was no ordinary meeting for the Gaveliers of the University of Colombo as the Gaveliers of College of Chemical Sciences teamed up with them for their 122nd meeting, under the theme “Teamwork”.

Old friends from the Gavel Club of CCS were warmly welcomed by the UOC Gaveliers with greetings and hugs. After a quick ten minutes of catching up the meeting started off to share the ideas and experiences the Gaveliers had on teamwork.

During the Round Robin session ideas about the good side, the bad side and sides we have never noticed about the concept of teamwork came up and the word of the day “Alliance”;the best word to match the theme,  was used many times by the speakers.

Gavelier Senuri took her first step in the Competent Communicator manual journey with her speech, “Me Before You” teaching us the importance of following our heart amidst some very interesting stories from her childhood.

Old sayings, “Too many cooks spoil the broth”, poems, “No Man is an Island”, challenges, “Throw me to the wolves and I’ll come leading the pack” and controversies, “Teams divide us” were some of the table topics during the meeting, and the insightful ideas presented by the speakers were both eye opening and entertaining.

Needless to say, it was a very entertaining and insightful joint meeting. In addition to the opportunity to become a better speaker, it was a great opportunity to renew old friendships and make new ones. It was very nice to have the Gaveliers of CCS at the joint Gavel Club meeting and we look forward to gathering again at a joint meeting in the future.
