South West Speakers host Toastmasters event in Newton Abbot
Humorous hopefuls from all over the UK turning up in Newton Abbot, Devon to give their best entertaining, amusing or even comedy-packed speeches on Wedensday, September 28 as South West Speakers host a Toastmasters event.
Toastmasters is an international non-profit-making organisation dedicated to helping people improve their public speaking skills, and the Newton Abbot event will see speakers from all over the UK.
The evening will run from 7pm to 9.30pm, and speeches will last five-seven minutes each, before being judged to go forward into the next contest, to be held in Glasgow. Entrants are invited from Toastmaster members, but the event is also open for everyone to come along and watch.
South West Speakers club president Ben Maguire said: “I’m delighted we were chosen to hold this event. We are a friendly crowd and we’re keen to host this competition so that Toastmasters members from all over the country can enjoy the delights of Devon before their evening of comedy fame.”
The Toastmasters group, South West Speakers, meets every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at Ten Tors, Newton Abbot.
