Five Educational Breakout Sessions: 

 

Coach Angela Schnaubelt: Too Many Indians, Not Enough Chiefs.
Where do you find leaders? Are your members doubling up on officer roles? Does your club have trouble with completing the CL manuals each year? Learn how to raise up leaders within your club, grooming them to step into roles of greater responsibility.  Grow the leadership, grow the club!

 

 

Nic Breen: Raising the Bar Through Discipline.
Do you define your dreams? Your utopia? Your legacy? Come take a step back from the normal flow of life to experience personal transformation through self-reflection and goal setting. Discipline transforms your daily interactions with the world in order to accomplish everything we want to be.

 

 

Joy Davidson: From the Ashes—A Club Goes from Dying to Thriving!
Two years ago El Puente Bi-lingual Toastmasters Club was a dying club on the verge of folding. On June 30, 2017 this club finished the year as a Presidents Distinguished Club. Come be inspired and take home ideas that can build, strengthen and revitalize your club.

 

 

Marty Dickinson: Overcoming Your Fear of Live Video…Without Buying any Equipment.
“Live Video” is changing the public speaking space but most Toastmasters and professional speakers alike are too afraid to try it. Discover the 10 types of live video and 3 “best practices” secrets to having a successful live video presentation every time.

 

 

Natalie Palmer: What Really Matters.
Natalie freely admits she only remembers one theory from graduate school – but it’s made all the difference in her life. Walk away with five key elements that can help the people in your club, your office, and your life feel as if they truly matter.
