District 51 2008/2009 - "The Courage to Conquer"
Dearest fellow Toastmasters in District 51,
This year, Toastmasters International is making an effort to reduce the usage of paper at the International Convention in Calgary, Canada.
They were asking all those district officers and Toastmasters members in attendance to select the education session that they plan to attend and print out that speakers' handout and to bring it with them to the Convention as not all speakers are providing handouts.
Below is a complete listing of the 2008 educational sessions and links to all available handouts.
Therefore, we ask you to take opportunity of this great handouts in amplifying the leadership and communication skills in you.
Simply click on that session title to access the handout.Click on the session title highlighted to download a copy of the 2008 speaker handouts.
Best Wishes and Keep well always.
