Each year every Toastmaster club runs at least two sets of competitions.
On Wednesday, Wessex Speakers will be holding their 2014 Humorous and Table Topics contest.
For the humorous contest, the speakers are asked to prepare and deliver a speech of between 5 and 7 minutes with the aim of which to include relevant humour!
Table topics is all about practicing impromptu speaking, so for this contest no prior knowledge as to the subject is given to the contestant before they step up to speak.
The winner of the club contest will go through to the area final, which leads to a regional final. We are all looking forward to watching the six members who will be taking part showing us their skills!
