What is Theatre Sports?
It is the brainchild of Cliff Boer an illustrious former member of Victoria Quay.
Cliff won the 2003 Toastmasters InterDistrict Speech Final and was one of the 9 finalists in the World Championship of Public Speaking at Atlanta, USA. Glenis and I were there to see his winning performance in that Final and be photographed on stage with him and his then wife, Janet.
So far, Cliff is the only West Australian to reach the final of the World Championship of Public Speaking. He has fantastic speaking skills and he has devised a system of challenging, fun exercises to loosen us up and help us achieve the same kind of outstanding results.
Cliff will be at Overflow on September 5th
Overflow is a special extra meeting we have for Victoria Quay members. Besides the regular meeting every Wednesday evening, we meet at the Bowling Club on the 1st and 3rd Thursday evenings at 6pm for those members who want extra opportunities to improve and practise their speaking skills.
Very early in the meeting, Cliff will run his Theatre Sports for 30 minutes with an exciting mix of completely different speaking exercises. It’s highly entertaining – and yes, it can be challenging but that’s what we need to open up new opportunities and new skills.
There will be speeches and Table Topics too
Yes, it’s a regular meeting with all the the normal elements, but rearranged to include Cliff’s presentation.
You can see the draft Agenda on our website. If you have any queries or would like one of the remaining unfilled spots, contact me.
