THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY VIDEO CONTEST

 

Deadline for submission: January 31, 2024

Every Toastmaster experiences an impact on their lives after attending Toastmasters meetings. What’s yours? How has Toastmasters changed you as a person, in your personal or professional life?

    • Talk about the most difficult experience in your life and how you overcame it through Toastmasters. Take up the challenge and express it to free yourself.
