The members of the Sooke Harbour Toastmasters Club are pleased to announce that Brooke Somers place second in the Division A International Speech Competition on Saturday, March 27th, 2021. Her speech, “Being a Better Human,” also placed first at the Area and Club Levels earlier in the month. The first place winner goes on to the next level, though Somers would compete again should that person not be able to attend for any reason.
“It is the first time I’ve done this type of competition,” says Somers. “It was both unnerving and an amazing learning experience. I’m thankful that I pushed myself beyond my comfort level.”
Other club members competed:
Marlene Barry, Club, Area and District International Speech Competition
Rosanne Day and Christ deRosenroll: Club and Area in the Evaluation Competition
Members meet Tuesday evenings at 7:00. For more information, see https://sookeharbour.toastmastersclubs.org/ . You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Club President, Marlene Barry, at 250-884-9955
