And brilliant representation from Area 35.
Chris Howell (Bromley Speakers) was the contest chair, and did an excellent job keeping us to time, acknowledging all involved and making sure all the rules were followed.
Evelyn Khan-Panni (Bromley Speakers) gave us a polished personal story about the Digital Technology Evolution and Richard Green (Bromley, T&O, Lewisham, Trustmasters – have I missed any?) kept us amused with his story about Gordon Lamsey. I swear his wife puts on another 10 1bs with each humorous speech, no wonder he is scared to invite her as a guest to one of our meetings.
Stars of the evening were both from Area 35.
Malachi Talabi (Speakers of Croydon) brought his wife to witness a funny story with a message. Come and see them both again in Brighton in just over a week.
Samir Malak (Croydon Communicators and T&O, Bank of America) gave us a table topic with structure, a message, engaging body language, and great entertainment.
Malachi and Samir are both proudly holding their Division K trophies in the picture.
Thank you also to Becky Tuff – President of Women in Banking and Finance at Barclays who hosted the event, also pictured.
