With only three meetings left this calendar year the annual speech competition is fast approaching. This is held on our last meeting of the year which is the 9th of December. The competition is open to all members of Wimbledon Speakers Club regardless of length of membership or experience. The theme will be announced at our first November meeting and will be decided by our immediate past president Michael. We would encourage everyone to have a go as it is great experience. This is also an excellent meeting to attend as you get to see how different speakers tackle the same subject. There will still be the usual opportunity for participation in topics prior to the competition.
Wimbledon speakers club has returned, with our first meeting of the new season on Wednesday 10th September.We are looking forward to an action packed year, with weekly speeches, tough competitions, debates and workshops.True to form, the meeting started off in style with 2-minute speeches, inspired by the greatest guitar riffs of our time. Following this our president gave a succinct introduction to speech formation, for on the spot presentations. A skill set often required professionally, but sometimes difficult to obtain.
We then heard prepared speeches from one of our newer members, and one from one of our seasoned professionals. Each excellent, each offering something for us to learn.We meet every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month. We look forward to welcoming you in person.
