Speakers Summit - All Seats Sold Out!

I almost couldn't believe it. With one more week to go to our Speakers Summit, all seats have been sold out. Yep, registration was closed!

Our Public Relations Manager, Leah, was quite effective in creating and sending out a barrage of Speakers Summit promotional materials to various channels of Facebook and Toastmasters Clubs. Great job!

Shown below is the program planned for the Speakers Summit and I get to be the first speaker!

From the above program, you can see that I'm the only one who wasn't a District Champion. But I don't let that bother me. Although I still have doubts if I could come up with adequate material in time for my talk, I remember the following quote.

I do feel that with 6 years in Toastmasters, I've gained enough experience that will allow me to share helpful tips and techniques on the body language aspect of delivering a speech. In Toastmasters, I've been a speech mentor, a club mentor, a declamation contest coach and a speech contestant.

So yeah, it feels right, and I'm going with it! Wish me luck.
