Speech contests are a chance to practise communication and leadership skills under a strict set of conditions.
We generally offer four contests at Boyd Park Toastmasters: Table Topics, Evaluation, Humourous and International.
This year's winners at club level were:
• Table Topics: Andrew C
• Evaluation: Robert G
• Humourous: Geoff D
• International: Andrew C
These intrepid speakers went on to represent Boyd Park and compete against winners from four to five other clubs at at area level on Saturday 29 October.
All four contestants performed admirably on the day, and did themselves and the club very proud.
Finally, none of this can happen without the teams of contest officials who organise each step of the way. Thank you too to the team of judges, contest chairs, tally counters, timers and sergeants at arms.
