2014 Humorous and Impromptu Speaking Contests

Transformers Toastmasters Club held their annual club Humorous and Impromptu Speaking Contests on Monday, 25th August. The meeting was well attended with eight visiting Toastmasters from clubs spread from the West Rand to the East Rand.

Zahndri Prinsloo won the Humorous Speaking Contest with a speech on the health benefits (and pleasures) of kissing. Giancarlo Fenderico came second this a speech in the misinterpretation of non-verbal and verbal communication between different cultures and languages.

The Impromptu Speaking Contest was won by a fairly new member, Ferdie Pretorius, with Mary Byrne second and Giancarlo third. The topic of the Impromptu Contest was about the coming of spring and a hare.

The next opportunity to hear Zahndri again is at the Area H4 Humorous and Impromptu Speaking Contests on Wednesday, 17th September at the Morningside Country Club at 18h30 in the main club house. There may be an entrance fee to cover costs. Come and find out how kissing can improve your health and your life and see how Zahndri fairs against the best from the other clubs in our Area.

Our next club meeting is on Monday, 8th September (the day after Zahndri’s birthday). This will be a regular club meeting with prepared speeches, impromptu speeches and evaluations of the prepared speeches. Guests are always welcome. There is no fee to attend as a guest and we offer snacks in our mi-meeting recess. Hope to see you.
