Table Topics is impromptu speaking, done at most Toastmaster club meetings, and is a speech contest event as well. Toastmasters describes Table Topics here [1].

The name derives from an occasional practice of using questions written on cards which lie upside down on a table. The speaker picks up a card, reads the question, and answers it off the top of his or her head.

In a speech contest, the contestants are secluded until it is their turn. The same Table Topics question is used for each contestant.
