Westside Toastmaster member Robert MacKenzie competed in the finals for the World Champion of Public Speaking at the Toastmasters International Convention in Calgary, Canada on August 13-16. The competitors were the top ten out of a quarter million Toastmasters from 80+ countries around the world. Definitely impressive for him to have been in rarefied atmosphere with top-notch competition.
Robert previously had won the annual Region 2 International Speech Contest in June, 2008 leading up to the World competition. That Regional competition included the 8 best speakers from around California, Nevada, and Hawaii.
