QTMC 2015 Humorous Speech and Evaluation Contest

Many a curious face peered into the Conference Room at Queenstown Community Centre, if only to ascertain the source of incessant laughter that permeated the corridors. It was to be expected, as Queenstown Toastmaster’s Club held their annual Humorous and Evaluation Speech Contest on Wednesday, the19th of August.

 

With the welcoming address as our hors d’oeuvres, the main course of the night was indubitably the Humorous Speech Contest. The variety of speeches furnished by our contestants were delectably singular; from the flirting episodes of a heartbroken girl, to frantic searches of a half-naked man, the audience was treated to a series of sincere, meaningful, and most importantly, funny speeches.

 

Not to be outdone, the Evaluation Contest kicked off with a bang, with test speaker, Quok Lu, delivering an emotionally charged script. Our contestants proceeded to display their prowess for detail, sieving out the subtleties that strengthened his speech, and the detriments that derailed it. It was an enriching segment in more ways than one, not only for Quok Lu, but everyone.

 

The results for the contest are:

 

Humorous Speech Contest:

1st: Rose Ho

2nd: Kelvin Ng

3rd: Travis Teo

 

Evaluation Contest:

1st: Shaun Sim

2nd: Chee Kim Loon

3rd: Poh Liang Siah

 

Congratulations to the aforementioned contestants! The champion and the first runners-up will represent the club at the Area D5 Humorous Speech and Evaluation Contest, held on the 5th of September, at the Radin Mas Community Centre Conference Room.
