Last week we held our Toastmasters club’s International Speech and Table Topics contests. Congratulations to everyone who participated! And a big thanks as well to all the club members who were involved in organizing the contest.

For the results, feel free to consult the programme for the St-Lawrence Toastmasters meeting of January 29, 2019.

The meeting of January 22, 2019 will be a special meeting, since we will be holding a club contest (i.e. English and French humorous speech contests, as well as English and French evaluation contests).

Although it won’t be in the standard weekly meeting format, it’s still quite interesting to check out. For example, this is how an Evaluation Contest usually unfolds:

Congratulations to our members who participated in the Toastmasters Area Contests.  Such contests help members to break out of their comfort zone as they get more and more comfortable speaking in public.

Nous avons eu les concours de discours et d’improvisation à notre club Toastmasters la semaine dernière. Félicitations à tous les participants !

Les résultats sont disponibles dans notre programme pour la réunion Toastmasters du 6 février 2018.

Ce mardi 30 janvier, nous aurons une réunion spéciale à notre club Toastmasters à Montréal. En effet, nous organiserons un concours de club (c.-à-d. un concours de discours préparé et un concours d’improvisation).

La soirée aura un format différent de nos réunions hebdomadaires, mais c’est toujours très intéressant d’y assister. Par exemple, voici comment se déroule habituellement la partie du concours d’improvisation :

Au début du concours, tous les concurrents sont invités à quitter la salle.  À tour de rôle, chaque concurrent est escorté à nouveau dans la salle, et devra donner un discours non-préparé pour répondre à une question qu’ils entendront pour la première fois.  La question (le sujet d’improvisation) sera lue par le président du concours, et tous les concurrents auront la même question.

La durée de chaque discours sera de 2 minutes. (Les discours moins de 1 minute et plus de 2 minutes 30 secondes seront éliminés.)

Les juges évalueront les discours en se basant sur plusieurs objectifs, notamment: le contenu (développement du discours, efficacité), le rendu du discours (présentation physique, voix), et le langage (justesse, exactitude).  Si vous voulez en savoir plus, veuillez consulter le Guide et bulletin de vote des juges pour le Concours d’improvisation).

Enfin, ce qui peut surtout intéresser les membres de l’auditoire, c’est de voir les styles différents d’improvisation qu’il peut y avoir. Cela nous permet aussi de noter les points forts de chaque concurrent, et de comparer mentalement à comment nous aurions répondu à la question si nous aussi avions été sommés à y répondre.

Voici le programme pour la soirée Toastmasters du 30 janvier 2018.

Bonne chance à tous les participants!

A big congratulations to our member Nadine, for having won first place at the English Humorous Speech Contest that was held at the Toastmasters District 61 Fall Conference.  This is the highest distinction given for this category within Toastmasters.
