George Sutton Club Members Compete 2017 International Speech Contest and Table Topics Contest at Area

The winners of our club Table Topics (Teresa Seggerman) and International Speech Contest (Ryan Dunn) competed last night at the Area contest. Great job to both representing our club!

Teresa inspired the audience why having a love for yourself is such an important part of our lives. It was the best rendition of that speech yet and took 2nd place in a tough competition!

The table topic question for the contestants was, “Describe what pet (past, present or future) has aided you in public speaking.” Ryan gave a hilarious response of his next door neighbor’s puppy serving as a “babe… Read Full Post »

Our latest evidence of this truth is Hazel Ramsbotham. She joined out club at age “82″ (now 86) because she was starting a new business and wanted to improve her speaking.

Last night, Wednesday, November 9, 2016, we were honored to be invited to present at the Colorado Technical University Aurora Campus at their career fair.

We met students from a variety of nationalities and age groups as we talked about the importance of learning how to give good presentations and practice public speaking and presentation skills on a weekly basis…in a supportive environment.

Don't panic when faced with a tough topic in speaking
If you were to invite me to your house for dinner and I immediately took on a look of disgust and commented how dirty your house was and started blurting out, “Eew Gross! What kind of paint job is that on your walls?” What would happen? I probably wouldn’t make it to the dinner table. You’d throw me right out the front door in digust!

Then, why did every speaker at both Democratic and Republican National Conventions have that disgusted look on their face covering from A-Z why you shouldn’t vote for “the other guy?”

Don’t they realize anyone on… Read Full Post »
