Want to take your speaking and leadership skills to the next level?
Join us Friday and Saturday, May 10 and 11, in North Canton, Ohio, for our annual conference!
Toastmasters from all over Northeast Ohio will be making their way to Walsh University in May. They will be there to share ideas, make new friends, and watch the top speakers in our District compete for top honors!
You can be there, too! You can enjoy the workshops, learn new strategies and techniques, and walk away with new friends and new insights to making your life better.
Our Theme …
Our theme for this conference is “Touchdown!”, in honor of our proximity to the Pro Football Hall of Fame!
Meet Our “#1 Draft Pick” for this Conference …
Our keynote presenter is Terry Watson, CSP, from Chicago, Illinois. Known as the “AHA guy,” Terry makes people, companies, and organizations large and small aware of the conscious and unconscious ways they sabotage their businesses and their lives.
In every presentation, Terry provides ridiculously effective and easily implementable strategies. Terry gives people tools and strategies they need to get out of their own way while making them “laugh till they snort” in the process!
Last year, Terry passed the rigorous requirements to become a Toastmasters Accredited Speaker. The Accredited Speaker program is an elite Toastmasters program that recognizes those members who have professional-level speaking skills. Terry is one of only 81 Toastmasters who has achieved Accredited Speaker status since the program began in 1981.
Terry is also a CSP, Certified Speaking Professional. The CSP is the speaking profession’s international measure of speaking experience and skill, earned from the National Speakers Association. In order to achieve this award, speakers must past high standards of customer satisfaction, ethics, and presentation skills.
Therefore, you’ll not only learn from Terry’s message, but you’ll see and hear a great speaker at the top of his game!
The Fun Starts Friday Night with a Comedy Show!
Join us Friday night for the “Friday Night Fumble” Comedy Show!
Quarterback and comic genius Dave Wiley will kick off an hour of stand-up comedy, passing the mic to an all-star line up of comedians: running back Bob Palmer and second-string receivers Sharon Stadul, Terry Begue, and Monica Reusser.
Laugh as fellow Toastmasters fumble, fall and race to the end zone by tackling 10 minute stand up comedy sets before time runs out.
Note: Included with the event is a full dinner of Chicken Marsala, red potatoes, green beans, salad and brownies!
On Saturday, You’ll Score with a Variety of Educational Sessions …
We also have a full schedule of educational workshops featuring eight of District 10’s top speakers. Their topics focus on club leadership, emotional intelligence, mentorship, conflict resolution, personal marketing and club culture.
Plus, witness our own “Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony” and Championship contests!
You will get to honor the members of District 10 who have earned the Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) award, earned by fewer than 1% of Toastmasters worldwide…
… and see and hear District 10’s top speakers compete in the final rounds of the International Speech and Evaluation Speech contests!
