Vinette Hoffman-Jackson represented District 71 at the World Championship of Public Speaking in Vancouver
By Vinette Hoffman-Jackson
On Saturday 13th May 2017, after months of competition, I was selected to represent District 71 (UK & Ireland) in the International Speech Contest in Vancouver, Canada, which was a dream come true. I somehow managed to retain a calm exterior whilst graciously accepting my trophy and giving my thank you speech although butterflies were doing somersaults in my stomach.
You are invited to the next District 71 Conference — the Steel City Conference — in Sheffield from 3rd to 5th November 2017.
