Minutes Tonight's meeting was the first one after the huge typhoon hit Kanto area on 12th Oct. Everyone was relieved to see each other without any injuries. We realised that gathering twice a month regularly is a very precious thing. Considering such a situation, meeting topics were pretty much linked with "disaster" or "risk management". In the Table Topics Session, MU asked some questions about disaster, such [...]

Minutes Tonight's TMoE was KK, who was a first-timer. He was thoroughly prepared. He had even printed out the script and used variety of expressions to facilitate the meeting. The word of the evening was 'versus'. What I liked about his introduction of helpers was that he mentioned that there was a first time guest so the explanations should be catered for their needs.
