International Speech Contest & Evaluation Contest 2019 was held on January 16th, 2019 at Glen Abbey Toastmasters Club. The Winners of the first and second places will represent our Club at the Area 83 International Speech contest and Evaluation contests.
Glen Abbey will be hosting it's Club Humorous Speech Contest on November 21st, 2018.
What is A Humorous Speech?
Humorous Speeches are 5 to 7 minutes long. They should be thematic in nature (having an opening, body, and close), contain original content, use clean humour, and not be a series of one liners. Vocal variety, gestures, and speech content all play a part in a successful humorous speech. They should be substantially original. Any quoted material must be identified during the presentation.
Area 83 International Speech Contest & Evaluation Contest 2018 was held on February 21, 2018, and was hosted by our very own Glen Abbey Toastmasters Club. We are excited to announce that our members did very well in the contest. Congratulations Mikael Gatje who placed second in both the Evaluation and International contests, and Zehra Raza who placed third in the Evaluation contest. The Chair for the Evaluation was Sean Connor, who did a great job at running the contest and bringing energy to the evening.
We cheered for Glen Abbey Toastmasters Humorous and Table Topics Club Contest winners, Zehra Raza and Srini Kesavan, as they represented our club at the Area 83 contest. After an exciting round of speeches, we are proud to announce that Zehra Raza was a 1st Place Winner in the Area Table Topics Contest and will be moving on to the Division level on October 18, 2017.
