A fine evening welcomed Debra back to the chair. Typically bright and original, she left her usual indelible mark on the meeting. Chrissy won the eponymous Debra for the best impromptu and the evening was crowned with Farida’s (pictured) first speech at the club.
Wimbledon Speakers bounced back into action for the new season on Wednesday evening.
A gentle session with plenty of opportunites for the members and guests to practise their impromptu speaking skills. Everyone was quickly back in the groove and looking forward to another excellent year.
A great Topics session at the last meeting chaired by Vanessa (on right) focussed on subjects with an environmental or recycling theme. Chrissy (left) gave her customary excellent evaluation to Michael who was preparing for the Public Speaking Olympiad at the weekend. The Olympiad featured teams from Toastmasters, Cogers, SpeakersBank and our own ASC. The Toastmaster were worthy overall winners on the day. However Michael won the award for the outstanding individual speaker. (Not bad considering the contests contained 6 speakers who had been national prize winners with either Toastmasters or ASC.)
