The Humorous Speech and Table Topics contest was hosted by the Watford Speakers earlier this month.

The best speakers at Croxley Communicators, Harrovians, HOD Speakers and Watford Speakers Toastmasters clubs tested their skills against each other on Saturday, September 21.

There were seven speeches delivered on the night with subjects ranging from skiing to shopping. The winner was Gill Ornstein from HOD Speakers with  "A Tall Tile Tale".

David Collins, a member of Watford Speakers, said: "The event was well attended and a great contest was enjoyed by all."

Watford Speakers is part of Toastmasters International - a world leader in communication and leadership development. It is one of 14,350 clubs in 122 countries worldwide.

The club has a mixture of very experienced and novice speakers in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
