Prepare to challenge yourself.
Do you remember how visiting a Toastmaster meeting for the first time was challenging and nerve racking, but you felt the fear and did it anyway.
During November I've been visiting all the Division contests and have seen an amazing array of members taking part, having won their Club, then Area and moved onto their Division. They also felt the fear and did it anyway. Those outstanding speakers will now move onto the District contests in May 2020.
But it's not too late for you to get involved, the next Club contests will run in February and March so why not start getting ready for the International Speech and Evaluation Contests.
