Sep 26, 2015 Toastmasters Meeting - Leave Them With A Smile

I delivered my 2nd advanced speech project, Leave Them With A Smile, from the Humorously Speaking manual. Entitled "Into the Contest Zone", the speech was evaluated by Michael Jacinto. Interestingly, both Dolly and Ian just competed from a speech contest prior to the meeting at Hermanos Taco Shop in Molito Alabang.

Into the Contest Zone
(Leave Them With a Smile, Advanced Speech Project #2 in Humorously Speaking Manual, Sep.26,2015, ACT Club, Hermanos Taco Shop, Alabang. Evaluated by Michael Jacinto, CC ALS)


Good afternoon fellow Toastmasters. Well, the speech contest season is once again in the air! And we congratulate toastmaster Ian/Dolly for his successful participation in this morning’s Division contest.

I remember the first time I participated in a speech contest many years ago. But I was not a contestant then. No. I was a test speaker or what was also known as model speaker.

A test speaker is one who speaks in an evaluation contest and the contestants evaluate the test speaker. The contestant with the best evaluation wins.
