11th December

It is always a pleasure to see new faces coming to the fore.
In November Rob was voted best topic speaker for the first time.
This was followed up in December with Emily’s first time.
However, in the same December meeting, in the more competitive world of the annual speech contest,
events took on a more familiar pattern with Alice taking the first prize.
Alice will now go on to represent Wimbledon in the London Finals in February.
This is a road she has already travelled, having won all the way through to the National final in 2011,
when she was placed 3rd in the UK Speech Contest.

National Champions

On Saturday October 19th the ASC inaugurated the National President’s Dinner. Taking place in the beautiful city of York, the event brought together over 100 of the the leading members of the Association for a celebratory dinner with the intention of show-casing some of the UK’s prize-winning talent. Out of the 7 speakers presenting 2 were from Wimbledon Speakers Club. Both Michael as the reigning National Topics Champion and Katherine as last year’s Evaluation Champion were invited to perform for the assembled delegates. All 7 speakers were very well received. Once again Wimbledon Speakers is very proud to play such a leading part on such an occasion.
