Humorous speakers delight audience
Karratha Toastmasters held its second year of the humorous speech and table topics competition in front of a packed house of members and supporters recently.
Table topics competitors were presented with a topic and had to speak eloquently on it for two minutes.
This year’s topic was “you have been selected to start a colony on Mars. There is no chance of return. Why do you want to go and what can you bring to the project?”
Sadaya Marathe has a background in engineering and convinced us all of the benefits of including her.
Humorous speech is a free form as long as it is funny and meets the criteria set in the Toastmasters competition guidelines.
The audience was in stitches during the competition.
Sally Culver’s “Revenge”, about sibling rivalry was brilliant but Lizeth Ruiz took the gong on the night with tales about her children.
Toastmasters’ district officer Lynette Delaney came from Perth to present the certificates.
The club meets every second Tuesday at the KDCCI rooms.
