Island Bay Toastmasters Humorous & Impromptu Speaking Contest - Guests Welcome!

Tonight is the night when the giggles, guffaws, smirks and snorts a speech receives count. Yes, its the Humorous Speech Contest which will be immediately followed by another to find out who has the best gift of the gab; the Impromptu Speaking or Table Topics Contest.

If you'd like to come along as guest and you'll be warmly welcomed but be warned, this isn't a regular meeting. This one is special. It's an opportunity for experienced Toastmasters to hone their public speaking skills with the added frisson of healthy competition. It's fun, educational and a great way to see and hear skills in action.

Time: 7:30pm - 9:30pm
Where: Island Bay Community Centre, 137 The Parade, Island Bay
Bring: Just yourself!

Come on time - meetings start at 7:30pm sharp. There's a break for tea and biscuits half way through, when you'll get a chance to speak with Toastmasters members and find out more.

We hope you can join us!

    Thanks to Mark for Chairing, to the Judges for judging! Agree with Russell - a great topic for the Impromptu Speaking. Well done everybody - especially Kate! Good luck to Russell in the upcoming Humorous Contest. And thanks James for coming along and promising to come again! Nice to meet you.

    Great topic for the Impromptu Speaking - "If at first you don't succeed, should you try again?" Contest ably won by Kate, who will now represent us at the Area contest. Well done, Kate.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
