Just Pros Dragon's Den is back! We invite Toastmasters from District 96 AND District 21 moving on to their next level of competition (whether it is the Area, Division or even District) to rehearse their contest speech on the big beautiful stage at JIBC in New Westminster. Speakers will receive feedback from Just Pros Dragons
Who: Toastmasters moving on to their next level of competition, and their cheerleaders and supporters.
What: Rehearse their contest speech on the JIBC Theatre stage.
Why: Hands down, feedback helps us with our speaking skills and improve. The Dragon's Den event is a great stepping point to help speakers get feedback and add to their toolbox of speaking skills. Speakers will have the opportunity to do their speeches in front of a larger audience on a big stage.
Please e-mail Vivien (contact information below) with a) Name, b) Club, and c) next level of competition, to apply. Applications will close at 8:00 a.m. sharp on March 30, 2017. Speakers will then be determined by a random draw and notified to speak at the Dragon's Den event.
