Who knew hats could be so interesting?

I recently attended an online Toastmasters meeting with a theme related to "hats". I was apprehensive at first because it seemed such an odd choice of theme to me. Was the meeting going to be about what I considered to be fashion accessories? 

As it turns out, there is a lot to talk about because hats are a fascinating subject.  We don't wear them much nowadays, but throughout history they have an essential item of clothing for most people. 

Think of how many proverbs and expressions there are relating to hats:

  • hat trick
  • old hat
  • mad as a hatter
  • talking through your hat
  • eating your hat
  • if the hat fits, wear it. 
  • ..

This is just a small selection. The list goes on and on. 

We have documented a meeting theme based on hats on the wewritespeeches database of meeting theme ideas that we are curating.  This meeting would be ideal if you want to:

  1. start the process of finding volunteers for the club leadership team
  2. turn the table topics session into a problem solving session
  3. have an excuse to get everyone at the meeting wearing a hat for the pure visual splendour of it!

We hope you find it useful!
