Club Member Comes 2nd In Britain & Ireland Final

Congratulations to Doncaster Speakers club member Jon Carvell who came second in the District 71 Table Topics competition.

The District 71 finals puts the best of all the Toastmaster clubs in Britain and Ireland together. Before this there there was club level, area level and semi final level to negotiate.

Also well done to Jordan at Sheffield speakers who made it through to the finals of the Evaluation competition but unfortunately did not finish in the top three.

If you would like to improve your speaking and enter a competition join us at one of our club nights on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, currently online via Zoom and back at the Regent Hotel Doncaster once lockdown ends.

Milestones Old & New

This month saw two of our members, Bridget and Elizabeth complete their Toastmasters training manuals.

The difference was Bridget who is a long standing member has been working on the paper Competent Communicator manual which is being phased out in June whilst Elizabeth a fairly new member has been doing speeches out of the new online Pathways manual.

So due to the time scales Bridget is the last member to be able to complete the old manual before the deadline and Elizabeth gets the accolade of being the first member to complete a Pathway.

If you would like to know more about Pathways visit the Toastmasters website https://www.toastmasters.org/

First Online Meeting Held

Video of pictures from our first ever online meeting yesterday 23 March 2020.

As the meeting started we were in recommended lock-down and by the end of the evening we were in actual lock-down so it was a good choice to try out the first ever online meeting at Doncaster Speakers.

Below are some pictures from the meeting.
