Some members will be aware that the Toastmasters International Speech Competition and Evaluation Competition is upcoming. These competitions are official Toastmasters competitions where the winners from each club competition go forward to area/district/national/international competitions.

 

So for the International Speech Competition, this is open to all members who have completed 6 projects in the Competent Communicator Manuals. So please step forward if anyone is interested in delivering a speech in this competition.

 

Last Years’ winning speech (overall worldwide) can be seen in the link below.

The Evaluation competition is open to anyone! We’re working on someone to deliver a target speech which will then be evaluated by each competitor. So again, anyone wishing to enter this competition, please raise your electronic hand.

 

During the contest (for those not participating) we also require Judges including a couple of experienced chief judges.

 

Both contests will be held on the 17th February, the 3rd Wednesday in February!

 

Cheers,

 

Rich

Vice President Education
