Table Topics Contest

Where do Table Topics come from?

From its beginning 90 years ago Toastmasters International has encouraged its affiliated clubs to practice the art of impromptu speaking.

In Toastmasters this is called Table Topics and is included in most club meetings.

Like all public speaking skills you get better with practice. That is why members are encourage to join into the table topics section of a club meeting. They’re encouraged to use their impromptu skills at work and elsewhere. They’re encourage to enter contests to hone their skills even further.

Table Topics Contests

Every year clubs hold a Table Topics Contest. In the final round at the district conference a trophy is handed to the new table topics champion D91 UK South.

You can find out more about Table Topics and other Toastmasters contests here.

Note: The reason why there is no entry for 2018 in the table, was due to the District Table Topics contest being moved from November 2018 to May 2019.
