Maccabi Toastmasters Clean up in International Speech Contests!

Posted: 04-Mar-2013 by Maccabi VIC

Last Sunday, the 3rd March, members of Maccabi Toastmasters achieved an outstanding result at the Toastmasters International Speaking Contests in South Melbourne.
Harry Szmerling came first in the International Speaking Competition, with his speech “Ego is Not a Dirty Word”. First in the Humorous Speaking Competition was Leon Belkin with his speech “ Just What the Doctor Ordered” and 2nd Place and 3rd Place in Evaluations was Harry Szmerling and David Hatchuel, respectively.

This is a wonderful achievement for our Club and for Maccabi Victoria. Both Harry and Leon will go on to represent Maccabi at the International District Convention in Adelaide in May with the winner of the International Speech contest invited to participate in the World Championship of Public Speaking in the United States later this year.
