On Thursday 29 September 2016 the Area L9 Humorous Speech and Table Topics competition took place in The Plough public house. We were treated to an evening filled laughter, and feats of eloquence!
All four competitors in each competition set high standards for themselves and raised the bar for the Area’s clubs.
The Humorous Speech contest was between Irene Bradshaw, Philippa Ellis, Francine Legrand and Mike Thompson. Irene Bradshaw was not a stranger to the contest, having competed the previous year, and took First Place. Philippa was a strong contender placing in Second.
The Table Topics competition was keenly contested by four challengers: Freddie Daniels, Daniel Broadhead, Sara Thomas, and Simon Cooper. First and second place finishers were Freddie and Daniel with their energetic and passionate impromptu speeches.
We are very pleased to see Irene, Philippa, Freddie, and Daniel go through to the Division Contests which are being held at the London Business School on Saturday 15 October.
