Harrogate’s Terry Ryan has secured a place in the Grand Final of the Association of Speakers Clubs (ASC) national Public Speaking competition to be held in Edinburgh on Saturday April 16th.
Terry has won many prizes for public speaking including After Dinner. He had considered cutting down on his Public Speaking roles but a visit to the cinema to see The Kings Speech changed all that.
Terry said “I know a number of people with speech difficulties who have taken up public speaking as part of a process of managing their condition”. “I am very fortunate to have some public speaking ability and no impediment – the Kings Speech inspired me to carry on and enter the ASC’s 2011 national public speaking competition and I am delighted I did”. He added
Terry earned his place in the Edinburgh final after winning three separate qualifying rounds culminating in a win at the ASC’s Eastern District contest in York on Saturday February 19th. Where a panel of experienced judges (all Public Speakers in their own right) put him in first place. The audience was drawn from ASC’s clubs in Bradford, Wetherby, York, Huddersfield and Craven in Wharfdale.
Terry won the ASC’s national final in 2009 and if successful in Edinburgh in April would be only the second person in the history of the organisation to win the national title twice.
The Association of Speakers Clubs (ASC) is the UK’s premier public speaking organisation with approximately 2000 members nationwide. It is a not for profit organisation offering low cost public speaking coaching.
