District Spring Conference

Dates – 5-7 May

The Mayflower conference team have been busy pulling together a fantastic and impressive line-up for our Spring Conference. How lucky are we that Toastmasters International President, Mike Storkey will be attending the conference and will be delivering a keynote and workshop? That’s just for starters.  Why have one keynote speaker when you can have two? Attending the conference too, the wonderful 1995 World Champion of Public Speaking, Mark L Brown. The full programme is now available, take a look.

Booking is open for the conference. There are a range of packages available. Don’t miss out, the early bird rate ends on 28 February.

Articles for the newsletter and publications

Over this Toastmasters year, sharing your stories and experiences has been a delight. Your reaction, comment and feedback is confirmation that it’s something that you enjoy reading. If you have thought about writing an article, my suggestion is go for it.

In raising the profile of Toastmasters International both Districts 71 and 91 members provide articles for publication in a range of magazines and online sites. If you’re interested in joining the pool of writers contact me.
