Comcast Silicon Valley is proud to be hosting the upcoming regional Humorous Speech Contest as part of our membership in Toastmasters International. On Thursday Sept. 15 we’ll hear from several CSV members as they compete to win a slot in the G4 Area regional competition. The larger G4 event will take place at CSV on the evening of Sept. 29th from 6-9pm. We wish the best of luck to all participants and look forward to a thoroughly entertaining event!
With over 345,000 members, Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 15,900 clubs in 142 countries that make up a global network of meeting locations.
Silicon Valley Toastmasters Clubs
Clubs in our local area provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.
The Fall contest season is an integral part of the Toastmasters year. Contests provide an opportunity for speakers to improve their speaking abilities, recognize Toastmasters who compete as an inspiration to us all, and provide an opportunity for us to learn by observing speakers who have benefited from their Toastmasters training. Contests also provide new leadership opportunities for those members who are part of the team that plans the contest and makes it happen.
Contests begin at the club level with winners advancing through regional, state, national and international competition.
