Sweet performances at our humorous speech contest on Monday 11 SeptemberPosted on September 24th, 2017 by Admin in Uncategorized
We had four excellent speeches.
Carolina took first place with a speech entitled Sweet Performance – a story about the many ways that sugar can get the better of us.
Malachi was in second place with Serious Business: how he used the Edinburgh Fringe’s funniest jokes to win friends and influence people at work.
Teddy gave us a speech entitled “Some things you just cannot explain..” about a father’s efforts to steer clear of his daughter’s fateful predictions.
And Trang gave us a speech called “A Vietnamese in London” with insight into some of the stereotyping that she’s experienced.
Then for the table topics contest we had Carolina, Malachi, Maria, Mohammed and Trang with Maria in first place and Mohammed in second place.
It was also great to see Simon join us and say a few words in the wake of his second placing in the World Championship of Public Speaking. He reminded us that we had helped him shape that speech through our feedback when he came to practice it with us in July…
