2019 Impromptu Speaking Contest Winners

Congratulations Deborah Pinnock, Bhagawati P Parmar, and Bruce Pockey for winning our club’s Table Topic impromptu speaking contest.

This contest tests the ability to respond to a question or prompt not of the speaker’s choosing. Contestants were led into the room one at a time and presented with a simple prompt: “To Be.” Here’s what they did with it.

Impromptu speaking is one of the most valuable skills we practice in Toastmasters, useful in countless real life situations where the ability to “think on your feet” is important.

Club Awesome’s weekly meetings almost always feature a more informal Table Topics contest.
