I believe that inside each of us is a unique message, point or story we want to share with the world.
No. Need to share.
Why did you join Toastmasters? Take a moment and think about it. Think about why you were compelled to learn more about public speaking and communication. What was it that motivates you to further your personal development?
In short, what message did you want to share with the world?
Here is your chance. On March 29, Morningstars Toastmasters will be holding the club level International Speech Contest, where members present a five- to seven- minute speech on any subject they choose. That’s right — ANY SUBJECT.
The International Speech Contest is the only contest that goes beyond the District level. Winners of the District Conference round will advance to the Toastmasters International Conference held in August in Vancouver, BC this year.
In order to enter the contest, the participants must have completed at least 6 formal speeches from the Competent Communications manual and be a member in good standing (paid your dues). Click here to download the full 2016-2017 rulebook.
The International Speech can be about anything but should include the basics you know so well: personal stories. The idea is to let people into your world so that they have a better understanding of theirs. Make it personal. Make it memorable.
Interested in participating? Sign up as a Speaker on March 29 in Turbobase to compete. It’s that simple!
