All the best to our D109, Peter, for the next round on Region level!
Our educational part was exceptional! Ed Tate gave us some tips on story and Kwong Yue Yang made us focus on our presentations, Luca Baiguini presented a whimsical aspect for any negotiation plan from now on, John Zimmer shared his eagle vision and Florian Mueck taught us how to conquer the virtual stage.
Last but not least we all felt honored to have with us the distinguished CEO of Toastmasters International Daniel Rex. His serene presence framed the situation with covid and then with a dynamic way explored the potential of our District.
If there is one word that comes in mind that would be “enrichment”. And that is a great feeling to part with the Conference 2020…
See you all next year hopefully in Crete!
