A triple Champion with a difference

Well done to Wimbledon Speakers’ Michael Ronayne.
On Sunday April 27th 2014, Michael won the National Association of Speakers Clubs’ UK Speech Evaluation Final.
What is remarkable is that Michael has now been crowned UK National Champion in each of the 3 speaking disciplines: prepared speech, impromptu speaking and now speech analysis and evaluation.
It is a fine achievement to be recognised as excellent in one discipline.
It is a fine achievement to be recognised as an excellent all-rounder.
It is something rare to be recognised as both.

London Area Contests

Congratulations go to Alice for winning the London Area Speech contest. Alice produced a very polished free-flowing speech, drawing together disparate themes of London landmarks with courteousness and even branching into the status of the modern woman. The judges were clearly impressed with her style and delivery.
Congratulations also to Michael for coming away as the winner of the Evaluation contest. Lissi also performed well in the Topics contest, but was not placed in the final reckoning. An excellent showing from our Wimbledon speakers. We wish Alice and Michael the best of luck at the District finals on Sunday March 23rd in Maidstone.

Club Contests

Over the last few weeks Wimbledon Speakers has run each of its club contests in order to pick the team that will go on to represent the clulb at London Area Level.
Alice came first in the speech contest before Christmas and she has now been joined by Lissi (Topics) and Michael (Evaluation). The London Area Final will be hosted by Wimbledon in our usual venue on February 22nd (1 – 5 pm). Guests are welcome; supporters most welcome. It is a great opportunity to hear first class communicators from across the London clubs.
