Last week we have experienced the funniest and most interactive Toastmasters Antwerp meeting yet! Many guests joined to listen to international speaker & Belgian champion Lars Sudmann present his workshop: The Humor CODE. We'll put some pictures on facebook, including some from the student workshops we organised at Lessius & University of Antwerp a few weeks ago.
In case you've missed Lars, don't worry, he will present another presentation at the division contest in Antwerp this saturday, April 28th. The division contest is arriving quickly now. Area champions from all over Belgium, Luxembourg & France are preparing themselves for the next confrontation in Antwerp to get a ticket to the district conference in Poznan on May 26th. The winner in Poznan will get to compete in the World Championship of Public Speaking in the USA!
Our very own club has two people competing at the division contest: Peter Nevelsteen in the speech contest & Wouter Duckaert at the evaluation contest.
What can you expect?
- The very best speeches & evaluations by the greatest speakers in Belgium, Luxembourg & France;
- Inspiring workshops from international speakers, including Belgian Champion Lars Sudmann;
- Delicious food & refreshments at the beautiful Radisson Blu Astrid Hotel, at Antwerp's Central Train Station;
- A friendly & fun atmosphere as you get back in touch with likeminded fellow Toastmasters!
Location & transport:
The Division B contest will be held in the Astrid Radisson Blu Hotel, Koningin Astridplein 7, 2018 Antwerp. I suggest that you come by train. The four star hotel is in the city center right in front of the Magnificent Central Station of Antwerp.
