Effat University Annual ‘Toastmasters’ Public Speaking Contest 2023

We are excited to be part of this thrilling event on Saturday the 21st of January!

University Toastmasters Club for Public Speaking and Leadership is hosting their annual contest themed as “The Strength of Raging Fire” which will be undergoing 4 different categories including: 

  • Humorous Contest: Contestants present a humorous speech that must be thematic in nature. 
  • Table Topics Contest: An impromptu speech, all contestants are assigned the same topic, told to them when they are introduced by the contest chair.
  • Evaluation Contest: Contestants observe a five-to seven-minute test speech and then present a two-to three-minute evaluation of the test speech.
  • Humorous Contest: Contestants present a five- to seven- minute speech on any subject they choose.

 Being Toastmasters’ traditions, Speech contests are a Toastmasters tradition. Each year, thousands of Toastmasters compete in the Humorous, Evaluation, Tall Tales, Table Topics®, and International speech contests. Competition begins with club contests, and winners continue competing through the Area, Division, and District levels. Winners of the District level International Speech Contest proceed to the region quarter final level. Following region quarterfinals, winners advance to the semifinals for a chance to take part in the World Championship of Public Speaking®. Their core values include integrity, respect, service, and excellence.

Toastmasters’ communication and leadership teaches members how to conduct effective meetings, practice time management, enhance their listening skills, sharpen their presentation skills, boost team collaboration, and guide successful teams

In Saudi Arabia there are more than 200 Toastmasters clubs. Effat University TMC meets regularly each Wednesday at 6PM at the Effat University in Jeddah. For more information about the club , please visit @effat.tmc.

The final level for all categories except International that is the dream of every contestant is called SATAC (Saudi Arabia Toastmaster Annual Conference), in which the Toastmasters President visits, workshops are conducted, and most importantly the SATAC champions are crowned. 2 of our Effat Members reached SATAC and where crowned winners. Humorous in SATAC2021 and Evaluation in SATAC2022. Let’s hope we reach SATAC2023 making it our 3rd time in a row.

 Their Club Mission is to provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.
