Upper Hutt, May 2018 – Karen Lynley represented Upper Hutt Toastmasters at the District 72 Speech Evaluation Contest in Auckland on 5 May 2018, taking first place.

The purpose of a speech contest is to provide an opportunity for speakers to improve their speaking abilities, to recognize individual Toastmasters as an encouragement to all, and to provide an opportunity for all Toastmasters to learn by observing speakers who have benefited from their Toastmasters training.

Karen works in the field of adult education and joined Toastmasters four years ago to increase her confidence in public speaking skills. She finds it a warm and supportive environment to learn and support other Toastmasters.

The Upper Hutt Toastmasters club, which is devoted to helping people become better speakers and leaders meets every Monday (except the first Monday of the month) and members prepare speeches which other club members evaluate.

The Evaluation and International speech contest are held in May each year in conjunction with the Toastmasters District Conferences.

The annual contests are a fun part of Toastmasters, but not everyone wants to compete. Upper Hutt Club is a very friendly environment for people who would simply like to become more confident speakers. Whether you have a wedding speech coming up, or a presentation at work – or even just want to become more confident – Toastmasters can really help.

Visitors are always welcome to attend Upper Hutt Toastmasters Club, which meets every Monday (except the first Monday of the month) in the Kingswood Room on the corner of King and Cairo Streets, Upper Hutt. Guests are welcome to attend a couple of meetings before making a decision about joining.
