Congratulations to Luis José Francisco Pichardo, CC, winner of the International Speech Club Contest, Alexandra Manger, ACB, ALB, winner of the Speech Evaluation Club Contest and all those who competed in the Nuremberg Toastmasters Spring Club Contest 2016. The Club Contest was once again very well organized with special thanks going to our Chief Judge – Phuc-An Tran, CC, CL, International Speech Contest Chair – Karsten Brach, CC, and Speech Evaluation Contest Chair – Marc Schuck, CC.
In the International Speech Contest all contestants delivered extraordinary speeches with original content, which definitely made the audience members think about the situation and experiences in their lives.
International Speech Club Contest winners (l-r): Second Place – Peter Bird, CC, Contest Chair – Karsten Brach, CC and First Place – Luis José Francisco Pichardo, CC.
In the Speech Evaluation Contest the target speaker asked a simple question “Do you drink milk, and if so why?” He then went on to inform us that maybe it’s not that good for us after all. The contestants perfectly mastered the challenge of giving feedback with only a few minutes to prepare. They gave specific suggestions for improvement, they gave examples of what the speaker did well and concluded by encouraging the speaker.
