Breaking The Ice


EY Toastmasters Meeting 5th November

What a stunning meeting at EY Toastmasters on the 5th of November where people truly broke the ice and stepped out of their comfort zones. We also had many new faces visit our club from all walks of life. We had the most phenomenal table topics speakers that took table topics to new heights.

Our Toastmaster of the evening was Marwaan who lit up the room with his enlightening quotes, and ideas that truly made us think on a deeper level.

We were honoured to have had 3 phenomenal speakers:

First Speaker: Yanga Gceya

Yanga did an absolutely hilarious and relatable speech that kept the audience captivated on his every word. A speech where Yanga also shared his life journey and extremely amusing key moments in his life. Yanga will be advancing on to the Division R Humorous Contest taking place on the 9th of November.


Second Speaker: Abdul Malick Adams

Abdul did his very first speech which is called an “Icebreaker” speech titled “My life and journey towards Toastmasters”. He truly wowed us with his speech and his life’s journey. A deep, relatable, and phenomenal speech indeed.


Third Speaker: Amy Chiwaye

Amy also did her very first speech titled “It’s time to dance.” A powerful speech and a very symbolic speech- she also shared with us her life journey and the trials and tribulations that she had to go through. What a beautiful speech.

We had Three Evaluators:

Rutendo did a group evaluation for Yanga where all of the members and guests chimed in with their advice and shared what they enjoyed about Yanga’s speech. A well rounded evaluation that took the guests and members out of their comfort zone.

Pratik evaluated Abdul and Yumna evaluated Amy. Great points of valuable information were shared with the speakers by the evaluators.

We then had an absolutely marvellous Table Topics session which was hosted by our Table Topics Master- Zainab Ebrahim. Zainab had a variety of thought provoking, hilarious book titles in which the Table Topics speakers would have to share their ideas on the book and convince the audience to buy it. It was truly hysterical.

Our Winners for the evening were:

“Best Speaker” went to Abdul


“Best Evaluator” went to Yumna


“Best Table Topics” went to Nkululeko

An inspiring and hilarious meeting. Stay tuned for the details of our upcoming meeting on the 21st of November.
