Thanet Speakers Club Report, September 9th 2010

The first meeting of the 2010-2011 Thanet Speakers club season was held on Thursday, 9th September 2010.  The evening saw two speeches from both ends of the public speaking spectrum.  Ian Lockyer undertook an advanced assignment entitled ‘How to conduct yourself online.’ The assignment was a tough task as he had to speak without the use of notes for twelve minutes.  Andrew Thomson evaluated and passed his speech giving valuable and essential feedback.

Ben Harris made the other main speech of the evening.  He undertook and passed the third assignment in the Association of Speakers Club (ASC) Manual on the subject of ‘The Mafia’.  His thorough and entertaining speech was evaluated meticulously by Frances Pointer.

The second half of the session saw an entertaining and tough Topics session led by Lisa Emms which was skillfully evaluated by June Edwards.  Feedback and advice about the whole evening was given by Ron Sheldrake.
