Club Contest – International Speech & Table Topics

15 Feb 2019: Marine Parade Toastmasters Club Contest – International Speech & Table Topics.

A double-bill evening where we heard top-notch speeches👍, ranging from our newest member to one of our long-standing member😎. All Contestants were well-prepared; using beautiful language with appropriate body language and right amount of gestures.

Daniel kicked the ball rolling with his speech on raising “The Average”, with a tagline that was on everyone’s lips by the end of evening. Penny delivered a universally-liked topic “Men Behaving Badly..” while “The Position Lines of Our Lives” by Anuj was a witty marriage of sea-faring and life. “Jekyll & Hyde” was a showdown of vocal variety with at least 4 different character voices played out by Prasad. Paulson shared his consumerism experience and gave a call to action to “Keep Your Tripod in Balance”. All contestants were Effusive, Inspiring and Captivating 🤩such that applause was never in short supply but ultimately, Paulson and Prasad emerged as winners who will go on to the Area Contest. 🎉🤩

Following the on-going Lunar New Year celebrations, Table Topics Master, Cher Khim, playfully set the topics in HongBaos 😂 (red packets) and Contest Chair Joyce selected the one, fateful HongBao containing: “Be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons.”

There were gales of laughter as Putu humourously delivered his speech rooting for pigeons instead of the colourful flamingos 🤣 – a creative content highlighting flying pigeons as the de-facto symbols of progress rather than flamingos. Penny was eloquent in the need for differentiation and splash of colour in our lives. Prasad opened memorably with the sounds of Tabla (Indian percussion) as taught by his music teacher, a flamingo he’d aspired to be, and linked it to leadership elegantly.

While the judges were deliberating, Joyce made profitable use of the time by interviewing all contestants on their strategies, thought processes and preparations. The audience benefited from the tips and learning points shared. 🤩👍
