Following a recent invitation to speak at the Rotary Club of Burnham Beeches, Mell Sheppard and Julie Farrell picked up the gauntlet. Those who attended the Speakers Club on 12 December were treated to a dress rehearsal of a brilliantly written and expertly delivered double act.
We heard back this report from John at the Rotary Club about how our ambassadors had fared:
The Rotary Club of Burnham Beeches engage Speakers from all walks of life at our regular Thursday evening meetings. On 15 December 2011 we challenged Maidenhead Toastmasters (Speakers) to talk to us under the heading “A Funny Thing Happened ……”
Maidenhead Toastmasters members Mellissa (Mell) Sheppard and Julie Farrell rose to the challenge magnificently and presented a self written sketch that was pertinent to our Club, clever and humorous and delivered by these two confident young ladies in a most professional manner. So, rather than being spoken to, we were treated to a most entertaining and different evening, the like of which is recommended to all. Our grateful thanks to Maidenhead Toastmasters (Speakers).
Hats off to Mell and Julie for a first class speech and for representing the club so well.
