The District 25 Spring Conference hosted nine outstanding presenters on Saturday, May 5th, across three education tracks: communication, leadership and personal growth. Presenters included members of District 25 and corporate trainers including instructors with the Boy Scouts of America Center of Professional Development. The session evaluation forms were full of high praise for all presenters and several of them were requested to return for a repeat performance.
Fellow District 25 Toastmasters, Susan Gardner and Philip Mann gave valuable advice about leading and motivating others to success. Mary Jackson provided helpful tactics specific to training, and Al Pearson inspired audience members to embrace change. Professional trainers Mindy Audlin and Ralph Voelker presented ways to enhance speech development and delivery. Sara Shepard offered insight into leadership development, and Tom Jansen and John Powell addressed ways to adapt and grow personally.
Session feedback indicated that District 25 members thoroughly enjoyed the variety of presenters and the high-caliber material they presented. Feedback also conveyed that audience members saw the topics as very relevant to them, and felt that the presenters were well organized, thorough and engaging with their presentations. As the education session chairperson, I am exceedingly pleased with the results of Saturday; it was a highly successful day of education sessions and it was my honor to work with such a terrific group of presenters.
