Moscow Area Winter Conference is an annual event when the members and guests of all Toastmasters clubs in Moscow come together to share experience, express themselves, communicate, and get to know each other better. By doing so, they build bridges between people.
The THEME of the conference this time is BRIDGES.
Suggested by Anna Kondrateva, CC from the Moscow Free Speakers club.
“Each person is like an island. As we learn how to communicate more effectively, how to better express our thoughts, and how to listen more attentively, we build bridges between islands. Bridges can be different: firm and sound, makeshift and light, simple and ornate. Some bridges are really solid and durable. They take time and effort to build, but they are worth it!
By making speeches we build bridges.
What kind of bridge will you build?”
Best speakers, who have qualified in their own clubs, competed to become best of the best in the whole Moscow Area. Congratulations to all the winners!
