Glen Abbey will be hosting it's Club Humorous Speech Contest on November 21st, 2018.
What is A Humorous Speech?
Humorous Speeches are 5 to 7 minutes long. They should be thematic in nature (having an opening, body, and close), contain original content, use clean humour, and not be a series of one liners. Vocal variety, gestures, and speech content all play a part in a successful humorous speech. They should be substantially original. Any quoted material must be identified during the presentation.
Area 83 International Speech Contest & Evaluation Contest 2018 was held on February 21, 2018, and was hosted by our very own Glen Abbey Toastmasters Club. We are excited to announce that our members did very well in the contest. Congratulations Mikael Gatje who placed second in both the Evaluation and International contests, and Zehra Raza who placed third in the Evaluation contest. The Chair for the Evaluation was Sean Connor, who did a great job at running the contest and bringing energy to the evening.
