Division B contests – results!

From Florian Bay, Division B Director

Over 200 Toastmasters and friends from all over London enjoyed an excellent Saturday in the splendour of Freemasons’ Hall while attending London Speaking Forum 2017 and the Division B InternDiv B Evaluation winner 2017ational Speech Contest and Evaluation Contest.

The workshops on offer covered topics such as rhetoric, body language, trust and storytelling. All the workshops were thoroughly enjoyed by those present and attendees also drew inspiration from two pre-contest keynote addresses by Toastmaster Bob Ferguson and by Peter Botting.

The standard in both contests was extremely high. In the morning, the best evaluators from West London regaled the audience with in depth-analysis of a mystery speech about Meritocracy. Our international speech contestants finished the day by inspiring the audience with subjects including fighting fires in the jungle and climbing Alpine peaks.

A thoroughly excellent day enjoyed by everyone present!
