Toastmasters Conference Day 1

It was out of the esoteric and into the practical today! Before the conference, the Toastmasters International Director, Division Governor, and I (I'm Lieutenant Governor of Marketing) visited local government officers and corporate contacts today, six of them. Over the course of the day, we got into the swing of it. We told them about Toastmasters. The most important thing seemed to be:

It's like communication workshops you can take,
only it doesn't cost thousands of dollars,
and you learn more because you get to practice more.

It's like a speaking or leadership course you can take at a college or university,
only it doesn't cost hundreds of dollars,
and you learn more because you get to practice more.

Not that we object to anyone taking those workshops or courses, because they can still come to Toastmasters to practice what they learned!

The conference started in the evening with a great speaker, dinner, and an evaluation contest.
