Thanet Speakers club held their annual Speech Evaluation competition on the 25th November. This yearly competition involves members evaluating an ASC speech under national competition rules. The speech used for the evaluation competition was delivered by our youngest member Ben Harris. The speech was a B3 which requires effective use of gestures. All evaluators passed Ben’s assignment with acknowledgement, and areas for improvement. The winner of the Evaluation competition was Margaret Jones with Kathleen Smith 2nd, and Francis Pointer third. These competitors will now participate in the regional Speech evaluation competition held in February 2011.
The seriousness of the first part of the meeting was lightened up by the topics session in the second half. Margaret Jones chose after dinner speeches which facilitated entertaining, and humorous responses. The winner of the impromptu speaking was Doug Weale who gave a captivating, and moving response to his topic.
