Table Topics were next, this is the impromptu speaking bit where people are asked a question and have to answer straight away for up to 2 minutes. This session’s Table Topics Master was Stephanie and her questions would rather have A or B. For example would you rather have a bus/train always on time or your food delivered on time?
A shout out to Debs who spoke for the first time and did very well with her Table Topic as she came out joint top with Andrew.
