For those of you who did not attend the International Speech Contest on January 19th, you missed an incredible evening. Six speakers captivated us with their very personal stories about topics ranging from revenge to self-acceptance, and evoked emotions in the audience from laughter to heart-breaking sadness. What a ride! All of the speeches were excellent but only four were allowed to advance. Congratulations to Marion West, Andy MacPherson, Tyler Bayley and Elaine Collins.
Too bad you missed it.
But wait! You have one, and only one, more chance to see what you missed. The four finalists have been practicing and honing their already brilliant speeches, and you can hear them at the Charter Party. Be prepared to be moved by the extraordinary talent displayed by these four speakers.
So, yes, the venue for the Charter Party is beautiful, our President David Webster has tasted and confirmed that the food is wonderful, but it will be the speeches that will make the Charter Party an evening you won’t forget.
Now go buy a ticket.
