Is there a world champion here in Leeds?

For most people, March means the start of Spring, Easter bunnies, Easter eggs and the clocks going forward.

If you’re a member of Toastmasters, it also means that it’s time to hone your speaking skills and get ready for the International Speech Contest!

The International Speech Contest works a bit like the FA Cup, in that each club holds its own contest (round 1), the winners from each club go forward to the area contest (round 2) and so on – until you get to the final, which takes place at the Toastmasters International Convention. This year’s International Convention is in August in Las Vegas.

What about you? Are you a champion in the making? If you’ve not experienced a Toastmasters meeting before, why not come along and experience the excitement that happens at contest time. It’s highly likely that you’ll be inspired and entertained too.

The two clubs in Leeds are holding their own separate contests and here are the dates for your diary:

  • Leeds City Toastmasters – Thursday 5th March at 7pm – taking place at the Novotel Hotel, Whitehall Quay, Leeds LS1 4HR
  • White Rose Speakers – Wednesday 11th March at 7pm – taking place at the Jury’s Inn Hotel, Brewery Wharf, Leeds LS10 1NE

Attending a Toastmasters meeting is free of charge, and you’re under no obligation to join.

Come along, find out how Toastmasters can help you, have an enjoyable evening out, but most importantly – see if Leeds hasĀ a world champion in the making!
