D'Utama Advanced IS & TT Contest

Friday, February 05 is contest day at D'Utama Advanced Toastmasters Club, and I participated in both the International Speech and the Table Topics Contest. There were 6 and 5 participants respectively. I thought I did reasonably well in the former (my speech title was 'Who Am I?') but regretably when the results were announced, I wasn't even placed. I must be honest – I am a wee bit disappointed. I am only human, after all. But I am not going to give up! I am going to try in at least another 2 more contests at different clubs. It has been a learning experience for me and I think I know what I must do in future.

As for the Table Topics contest, I did alright – it was a straightforward delivery, but devoid of humor – and I still emerged first runner-up. Okay lah! This means that I will also represent this club at the Area B1 Table Topics contest on March 13, 2010.

I am going to write a fresh speech for the next International Speech contest, and I hope to redeem myself!
