Celebrate Toastmasters 90th Birthday And Win Tickets to D95 Fall Conference!

How are you celebrating Toastmasters 90th Anniversary?

Since we’re not likely to get a podcast episode out in time for this promotion, we just wanted to make our audience aware of a great contest being held by District 95.  The district is looking for creative club celebrations of the 90th Anniversary within the month of October (entries need to be received before October 31, 2014).

The first prize winner will receive free entry to the 2014 Fall District 95 conference in Frankfurt am Main, Germany (alternatively a 95€ voucher for the Toastmasters International shop). The second place winner will receive a free ticket to the Gala Dinner (or 50€ voucher).  The third prize winner will receive a Saturday lunch upgrade (or 25€ voucher for the Toastmasters International shop).   For more information be sure to check out this article at the District 95 Website.

Celebrate 90 years of Toastmasters at your club and you could win!  We look forward to seeing you in Frankfurt.

Interview with Dirk Loeffelbein from Krakow


For all of the Toastmasters that were at the District 59 2014 Spring Conference in Krakow,  Poland you will no doubt remember the Gala Dinner and the surprised engagement proposal that Dirk Löffelbein made to Maija Kadlecova and that she said “yes” (eventually), it was an engagement proposal that none of us will ever soon forget! I had the opportunity to interview Dirk the next morning. He tells us about his feelings about the birth of D95 and the proposal.

It was nice to have a room in Krakow where I could do interviews (which I’ll continue to publish in the coming weeks). Unfortunately, I don’t believe that the room made the best backdrop for a video interview and a road race just so happened to occur while I was interviewing Dirk, but I hope that you can tune this out and enjoy the interview.  I encourage you to also check out the other videos at the District 95 YouTube Channel.

Bye for now,
