Clearwater Community Volunteers Center Hosts the Funniest Contest in Town

The Talk of the Town Toastmasters Club is having their Humorous Speech Contest in the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center on February 23.

Whatever your grade or position, if you know how and when to speak, and when to remain silent, your chances of success are proportionately increased.”
— Ralph C. Smedley, Toastmasters Founder

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, February 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ -- On February 23, members of the Talk of the Town Toastmasters Club of Downtown Clearwater will gather for their annual “Humorous Speech Contest” in the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) Center, sponsored by the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization. The Toastmasters compete for the best humorous speech to advance in a tiered tournament along the club, area, divisional, and district levels.

The contest follows the rules laid out by the Toastmasters International: contestants choose the topic and must create their own 5-7 minute speech. They hold this contest to promote public speaking skills and self confidence in participants to help them succeed in life and the workplace.

“Toastmasters provides a gradient approach to teaching public speaking,” said Toastmasters Founder Ralph C. Smedley. “Whatever your grade or position, if you know how and when to speak, and when to remain silent, your chances of success are proportionately increased.”

The Toastmasters is a not-for-profit organization, founded in 1924, that helps individuals develop skills in communication and leadership through thousands of clubs worldwide.

“Humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote, ‘A man is as alive as he can communicate.’ The Toastmasters seek to improve a persons life with those improved communication skills that he learns at their clubs,” said Ms. Clemence Chevrot, Director of the CCV Center.
