Leadership Training August 10th in Manchester

Four of our Cromwell Community Club Officers got up bright 
and early on Saturday morning August 10th, 2013 to attend Toastmasters Leadership Training in Manchester. 
Sheetal Patel, Bo Bogart, Hollie Rose and Elizabeth Landeen pose with David Freedman District 53 Lt. Gov. Marketing.

It was an exciting day, this past weekend, where we got a chance to network with and learn with other members of our respective offices. David Freedman worked the crowd before the opening festivities. 

During the Opening Ceremonies we heard many great speakers from the District 53 Leadership talk about the value and privilege of serving as a Toastmasters Officer, including District 53 Governor Val Albert. I didn't get a good photo of her speaking, but here's Bette McIntire (Lt. Gov. Education & Training) during her presentation on the health of our clubs...

And here's a few more pictures from the day we had...

 Elizabeth and Bo and Sheetal, notebooks at the ready!

And lucky me! All my VPPR classes were taught by Heather Turner - Social Media and Marketing guru from our club last year and owner of Forfeng Designs. Here she is above teaching the basics of Toastmaster Website manipulation and below, leading the open forum for VPPRs.

The day ended with another chance for Jerry Aiyathruai to practice his semi-final speech for the International Convention in Cincinnati next week.


All in all it was a good day!
