Doha: The gavel clubs wing of Toastmasters Division H, recently organised the Annual Inter-Gavels Contest. Contests were held in four categories: Humorous Speech, Inspirational Speech, Table Topics (Impromptu Speech) and Speech Evaluation.
The jury consisted of veteran toastmasters and star speakers from various toastmaster clubs in Qatar.
The choice of topics, language usage and delivery by the gaveliers left the judges impressed. It was a daunting task for even such experienced toastmasters to pick three winners out of eight contestants in each of the four categories.
The event was organised by chief counselors Aparna Ranish, Prathibha Ramesh and Surya Narayanan under the leadership of Div H Special Programs Officer, Susan Mathews and with guidance from Div H Director, Joseph Stanley. Div E Director, HPS Bhullar and Div J Director, Venkatesan Kulandaivelu also graced the occasion.
Ali Bin Ali and Homes R Us supported the event with gifts and goodies. Sampath Balaji, General Manager-Finance, Ali Bin Ali FMCG Business was the guest of honor and addressed the gathering. Susan Mathews, Special Programs Officer, Div H delivered the vote of thanks.
