Save The Date: Table Topics & Humorous Speech Contest September 21st, 2017
First Oakville Toastmasters will be hosting our first contest of the 2017-2018 season, Thursday September 21st, 2017 (7:30pm to 9:30pm).
Guests are always welcome! Prepare to laugh and to be inspired by our Table Topics & Humorous Speech contestants.
The Humorous Speeches are 5-7 minutes long. They must be original, clean humour, and not a monologue.
Table Topics are 1-2 minutes long. They are impromptu speeches. Each contestant for the Table Topics Contest will be presented with the same topic and speak extemporaneously about the topic.
Members in good standing (dues current) can participate in either (or both) contests.
Our winners for the Humorous and Table Topic Speech contest last year were Adrian Scott and Peter West. If you want to learn about their experience and advice to future contestants click here!
Good luck to all participants!
