Are you ready to regenerate enthusiasm using your superpowers? Do you want to learn new ways to control and focus those superpowers? District 25 SEES YOU. May 14th and 15th is our very first hybrid conference. We are going to have some merrymaking with our superpowers whether you attend in-person or virtually via Zoom.
Friday night kicks off with an invigorating education session given by our International Director, TK O’Geary, with Saddle Up Your Dreams – Your Superpower at Work. But wait there’s more… more excitement with the First Timer’s Reception, a Banner Parade and Dinner with our keynote speaker, Yoram Solomon, talking about his superpower, Trust, and our District Table Topics Contest Watch Party.
The merrymaking doesn’t end there. Are you ready to morph and shapeshift into your favorite superpower for Friday Night Fun? You might be crowned The Superpower by our judges, The Time Travelers (District 25 Trio) and Professor Muse (International Director TK O’Geary) in one of four categories: Best Dressed, Most Resourceful, Most Creative, or Judges’ Choice. Perhaps your superpower lends more to storytelling with our Pass the Story activity, an interactive group story-telling game which spins a unique story with twists and turns to create a magnificent ending.
Examples of Superpowers (but not limited to these):
- Have you kissed the blarney stone with your Storytelling superpower?
- Perhaps your superpower is the mightiness of painting a picture with words for all to see.
- Do you have the ability to SEE people with your Xray vision?
- Do you absorb all you hear and see? Maybe that’s your superpower.
But Wait. The festivities continue into Saturday. Let’s learn new ways to expand existing or harness new superpowers. We have an energy enhancing breakfast with keynote speaker, Brandy Schade, who will help us identify some superpowers we might not even realize we have. We have education sessions that range from shapeshifting and transforming yourself to adding pizzazz to your speaking skills moving on to improving your memory superpower and expanding your network and more. We are going to honor and laud all of our Toastmaster achievements with a wondrous awards luncheon with keynote speaker Warren Honeycutt who will help us focus our minds.
And there is more …
We have the District 25 International Speech Contest Watch Party. Are you ready to cheer on your favorite contestant? We’re going to find out who will represent us in the next level LIVE. The pinnacle of our event, Dr. Muse (International Director TK O’Geary) will honor us with her keynote “You have the (Super)Power Within” at the Saturday evening dinner followed by the World-Famous District 25 DTM Ceremony.
