Our Spooktacular Evening


On the 17th of October- we had our SPOOKTACULAR meeting with exceptional speakers. It was unlike any other and truly exceptional.

We had a wonderful Halloween theme and our fellow EY Toastmasters dressed the part too.

Our meeting was filled with amazing speakers who brought their own unique speeches that inspired the audience.  We also had spectacular Table Topics Impromptu speeches that were very creative and made us laugh a lot. People definitely tamed their fears at this meeting.


Our Toastmaster of the evening was Pratik– who did an absolutely marvellous job as Toastmaster. He really captured the audience in every single aspect.

We were honoured to have had 4 phenomenal speakers.

1. Merryl Jubber

Our First Speaker was Merryl who did a speech titled “How Intelligent Are You?” We were honoured to have had Merryl who is a Programme Quality Director do a special educational speech at our club. Her speech was very eye opening. She spoke about the importance of accepting and understanding people’s hierarchy of values.

2. Everton Chipere

Our Second Speaker was Everton who did a speech titled “Happy Face” which was very powerful. He spoke about how people put on a happy facade and he shared some tips on how to be a happier person from within.

3. Zainab Ebrahim

Our Third Speaker was Zainab who did a speech titled “Victim or Victor.” It was very deep and very relatable. She spoke about the power of your deepest thoughts. A quote from her speech: “You attract what you think.”

4. Yanga Gceya

Our Fourth Speaker was Yanga who did a speech titled “All Hail EY Toastmasters.” Yanga’s speech was very heartfelt and deep. He praised all of us in the room. Quote from his speech: “You have kept me alive, you have given me achievements that I’m proud to have attained.”


We had three evaluators who gave their unique feedback to our wonderful speakers. Gerd Jan evaluated Everton, Yumna evaluated Zainab, and Rutendo evaluated Yanga.

Our Table Topics Master for Impromptu speeches was Marwaan who led the way with his self enlightening table topics. Our Table Topics speakers wowed us with their enlightening speeches.

We had awards given to:

Best Speaker went to Zainab Ebrahim

Best Evaluator went to Gerd-Jan (This was Gerd Jan’s very first time evaluating someone and he did a marvellous job!)

Best Table Topics went to Cynthia Kanyenze and Amy


We hope to see you at our next meeting on the 5th of November where we will help you take your public speaking and leadership skills to the next level!
