August Speeches on YouTube

The first clip was from project assignment # 2 Speaking in Praise from the Special Occasion Speeches manual, titled "Farewell to Robin" given at D'Utama Advanced Toastmasters Club meeting:


The second clip was project assignment # 3 The Roast, also from the same manual, titled “Arun & Ayesha” given at the HICT Toastmasters Club meeting:

Who says HICT doesn't produce great speakers? Okay, I cannot claim to be one because I am definitely not – but Shireen and Mathew are really super speakers!
