1 September 2018 – Following the long-standing Toastmasters tradition, UNIRAZAK Toastmasters Club held its Humorous Speech & Evaluation (HSE) contest at the Innovation Hall recently. Each year, more than 30,000 Toastmasters compete in the HSE contests, where competition begins at the Club contest and winners continue competing through to the Area and Division level.
In the Humorous Contest, the contestants were expected to deliver a humorous speech that must be thematic and funny in nature, with an opening, body, and conclusion. The four contestants were Megat Firdauz Putra, Muhammad Naufal, Nik Joanita Nik Hashim and Megat Ady Putra Bin Haji Omar Din.
Subsequently, in the Evaluation Contest, contestants observed a five-to seven-minute test speech delivered by a speaker and they then presented a two-to three-minute evaluation of the delivered test speech. Ahmad Ridhuan delivered the test speech and he was evaluated by three evaluator contestants, Teo Tze Chian, AdamZairi bin Bahaud Salidi and Megat Ady Putra.
The event was concluded with the announcement of the winning results. The 1st place winner for the Humorous Contest was swept by Nik Joanita Nik Hashim, ACS, ALB with her speech title “You Get What You Give” and 2nd place winner was Megat Firdauz Putra, with his speech title, “Sleepery Slope”.
