A Toast…to Saggezza!
Toastmasters is a nonprofit educational organization that operates clubs worldwide for the purpose of promoting communication, public speaking and leadership skills. On the 1st of February 2020, Saggezza Bengaluru hosted Toastmasters International Area Level Contest. Interacting with other clubs was an enriching experience for our Saggezza Toastmasters Club members. The event comprised of three different challenges:
· Evaluation Contest: Contestants observe a 5 – 7 minute test speech and then present an evaluation of the test speech.
· Table Topics Contest: An impromptu speech where all contestants are assigned the same topic. The topic is only told to them when they are introduced by the contest chair!
· Prepared Speech Contest: Contestants present a 5-7 minute speech on any subject they choose. The rules for this speech are consistent globally.
Saggezza Bengaluru had approximately 10 individuals participate in the three contests. They were evaluated by a panel of judges, as well as a chief judge. The Division Level Contest was held on the 23rd of February 2020 where the winners were announced.
Today, the Toastmasters organization exceeds 358,000 individuals in over 140 countries. Since 1924, Toastmasters International has helped people from diverse backgrounds become more confident speakers, communicators, and leaders. A heartfelt thank you to ten of our Saggezza team members for being a part of such an influential initiative!
