Toastmasters is about developing skills... but what good are they if you don't get a chance to use them in "the real world"?
Put another way... If a bear speaks in the woods.... does anyone hear him?
For example, here are a few pictures of Dave Wheeler (member of WestConn Toastmasters, Socially Speaking Toastmasters and DiversityUSA/Advanced Toastmasters clubs) giving a presentation for his company, Trident Industrial Inkjet, at the recent Pack Expo tradeshow. Pack Expo was held from Oct.15th to 17th at the Las Vegas Convention Center and Dave gave 4 presentations at 3 different booths.
(He also built the stainless steel rolling demonstration station seen in the background. The Trident "demo" tool chest may be featured in an upcoming YouTube.com video spoof of the TV show, "Pimp My Ride" called "Pimp My Toolbox".)
Do you or someone from your club have any pictures showing how you used your Toastmasters skills in "the real world"?
Please send them along with the background story to us at DivA53@district53toastmasters.org and we will post them as an inspiration to others !
