Recently, I took part in the Area 15 International Speech & Evaluation contest. Having won the speech contest at Leeds City Toastmasters, and evaluation contest at White Rose Speakers, there was no relaxing as I had both competitions to do – not that I’m complaining!
Evaluation isn’t my strong point, so I was quite pleased that I managed to make third place (out of five). I did rather better in the speech contest though, winning by a very narrow margin, but never the less proceeding through to the Division contest at York.
Well done to everyone who took part, it was tough competition indeed!
Regardless of what happens in York, it does mean I have a new trophy to put on my shelf, at least until the Area Context next year.
However, the show was stolen by Erik, who provided Michael with dance lessons.
