September, 2022 to February, 2023 Update
Chatswood Early Riser members challenged themselves to participate in four big contests organized by them during this period as they were so keen to challenge and learn from each other and themselves. So there you go.
First face to face contest after pandemic on 27th Sep, 2022
The first one was the Table topic contest which was held on 27 September at their Chatswood venue. The purpose of the Table Topics Speech Contest was to provide an opportunity to learn by observing the more proficient speakers who have benefited from their Toastmasters training, and to recognize the best as an encouragement to all.
They had 7 participants who dared to showcase their impromptu speaking skills to all.
The table topic question that was given to all was Which place would you like to live in your life?
And the winners are!
1st Colin, 2nd Deeksha and 3rd Patrick
Next big event for Chatswood Early Risers was held on 11th Oct, 2022
The second contest was on the Humorous speech which was held on 11 October. There were seven contestants and the majority of whom were new members. This showcases the level of enthusiasm and the talent our members bring to the Toastmaster’s table.
Congratulations to all the winners!
