Association of Speakers Clubs members and guests had a wonderful time at the Gala Dinner in Birmingham city centre on 6/11/10 to celebrate the nomination of BBC TV’s Nick Owen as the ASC Speaker of the Year. Many local clubs were represented at the event as well as members and guests from all over the country. They enjoyed an evening of celebration of public speaking skills, both featuring the ASC’s own national champion and Nick Owen himself.
Nick regaled all present with stories of his journalistic and TV career, interspersed of course with a selection of his trade mark corny jokes! He certainly proved himself as a worthy choice for this prestigious award as Speaker of the Year 2010.
In addition to a fantastic evening of speech making, the evening raised a wonderful ? £1600 for Nick’s chosen charity Birmingham St Marys Hospice.
