The 19nth of March 2018 speech contest, held at Accenture, was probably one of the best contests that we have had as a club. It was very well attended and the contestants all brought their “A” game, making for an excellent contest! Our Demo Speaker was Barbara Bruhwiler, President of Dainfern Diamonds, who regaled us with tales of her toastmasters experience so far. The evaluation contest was very competitive, and our very own President, Yianna Grekas, won the contest and will be representing the club at the area contest. This was followed by the well prepared International speech contest speakers. The standard was high and the competition tough! The judges certainly had their work cut out for them in selecting a champion! Our very own Kazik Blonski won the contest and will represent the club at the area contest.
Congratulations to all of our contestants for making the evening a resounding success and thank you to all the role-players and organisers that made the evening possible and a success. thank you to Accenture for hosting our club in such a beautiful and professional venue, and most importantly thank you to our members, visitors and guests for making the evening so worthwhile. It is said that pictures tell a thousand words, so I have uploaded a few to share the evening.
