“Rowing as a team”
Toastmasters Bilbao held the last Division Conference of Division H – Spain. “Rowing as a team” was the motto of the Conference, representing the powerful teaching of team building.
Speakers from around the country took part in ferocious competitions, a battle of improvised and prepared speeches. There is no doubt that it was an outstanding opportunity to see how far communication skills can be developed.
Jack Vincent and Sebastian Lora presented priceless workshops about using the three main zones of the body language and preparing a successful elevator pitch.
A weekend full of vivid conversations with other communication-holics and a glimpse of the city by the hand of the locals. It was certainly the perfect mix for a memorable Toastmasters Division Conference!
