Event description

Description

Speech contests are a Toastmasters tradition. Each year thousands of Toastmasters compete in the Evaluation and International speech contests. Competition begins with club contests and winners continue competing through the area, division and district levels. The International competition has two additional levels — semifinal and the World Championship of Public Speaking®.

Each year, more than 30,000 Toastmasters compete in one or more of the following contests:

International
Contestants present a five- to seven- minute speech on any subject they choose. All districts must conduct this contest.

Evaluation
Contestants observe a five-to seven-minute test speech and then present a two-to three-minute evaluation of the test speech.
Guest are most welcome and meetings are free.
Communicate with Confidence!

Since 2014, Northampton Speakers has been helping local people to improve their communication and leadership skills. We aim to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every member has the opportunity to develop at their own pace, which in turn fosters self-confidence and personal growth.

How does it work?
We have a ‘learn by doing’ approach. Our members work through a programme of ten speeches designed to develop a variety of public speaking skills, and also carry out a variety of other meeting roles to practice skills such as listening and giving feedback. Each member works at their own pace – some people like to throw themselves into giving speeches straight away, while others prefer to spend some time attending meetings and carrying out smaller roles to build up their confidence.
