This unique occasion will commencemorate our existence in the way we know best - through speeches. Since the first demonstration Toastmasters meeting was held in Mallow in October 1992,a whopping total of over 2,000 speeches have been delivered at Speakeasy Toastmasters. Each speech was an achievement for the speaker who delivered it, another milestone on the journey towards excellent communication which is speaking with ease and confidence. Every speech was a story told, an opinion shared and a useful outpouring of ideas.
So fluent were the members of Speakeasy that two collections of speeches were published. In 1995, "Unaccustomed as I am" became a local best seller. In 1999,it's sequel "Sin Scéal Eile" proved to be equally popular.
Down through the years, there were several guests at meetings who said - "I could never do that". Yet, a short time later they found themselves delivering speeches with the skills of a professional. The ethos of Speakeasy Toastmasters is to encourage and motivate each member to be the best they can be. With a friendly, yet formal atmosphere, and an emphasis on quality evaluation we have helped our members to acquire communicating excellence.
Our Celebration Night will feature an array of speakers, both former and current members who will entertain, enlighten and give us cause for reflection. Among the speakers will be well-known personalities like Matt Lawlee.
He will be joined by Michael Cronin, another speaker who is renowned for his humour.
This "Greatest Hits" package is guaranteed to entertain and enthrall or to borrow a phrase from Gay Byrne will have "something for everyone in the audience". Food and beverages will also be available on the night.
We wish to invite all our friends and followers to join us in our celebrations. If you have never been to Speakeasy before, this is an ideal opportunity to sample us at our best. Guests will not be cajoled into speaking unless they really want to! So, remember the date :Friday 2nd March at 8.00PM in the Hibernian Hotel, Mallow.
