The Pathways District incentives as sent out recently by John Cox, PQD
For the first 30 clubs that manage to get 100% of their members enrolled on Pathways the District will provide $30 worth of TI store items. Just email me a copy of your clubs membership roster from the Toastmasters International website showing that all your members have enrolled on Pathways and your prizes will be winging their way to you
The Agenda is finalized and it is my pleasure to announce to you the line-up for the upcoming Norwich Conference (Please click on Conference Agenda to be directed to document)
What an action packed three days this conference will offer to those that book. There will be a total of 6 workshops and two Keynote speakers. There will be a total of 12 speech contests; 8 Semi-finals and 4 finals. There will be a Candidate Showcase where those running for District office will be asked a series of questions, so you will know them better. The District Council meeting will be on Saturday where our new District officers will be elected, and any motions will be voted on. There will be entertainment each evening and a lot of food. So, the question is…. What are you waiting for?
Keep an eye on the website for additional information and remember, “Keep Calm and Book Early Bird”
What does Norwich, 1940s, May 2019, fun, educational and yourself all have in common? If you guessed the 2019 Norwich Conference you would be 100% correct. I am getting excited that we are only five (5) months away from what will be a fantastic and history making conference.
Fantastic? You bet. We will have two outstanding Key note speakers. Eldonna Lewis Fernandez, Accredited Speaker, Toastmasters International will be visiting us from the United States. Eldonna speaks all over the world and we are fortunate to have her come to Norwich for her Keynote and will also be presenting a workshop. Our own Marcus Hemsley is our second Keynote speaker from Norwich. Marcus is the Founder of a Strategic Digital Marketing company, Fountain. Marcus has worked with many well-known companies but also enjoys working with start-up companies as well. Fountain has been awarded two prominent awards in 2017; Growing Businesses Online Award for Europe, Middle East, and Africa. Four weeks later, Fountain was a Global Google award winner. He will be presenting both a keynote and a workshop, so we are very fortunate to have Marcus at our conference.
History Making? You bet. For the first time in our history, we will be holding eight (8) Semi Finals and four (4) finals Speech competitions at one conference. Please come along and support your Division Contestant in each of the Semi Finals and for those lucky enough to make it to the final, they will need your support to help them win!!
Hope this finds all Toastmasters across District 71 well and enjoying the early signs of spring.
Pathways has launched, member renewals are due, and Easter is tomorrow!

We have been delighted to host Region 11 Advisor Aletta Rochat in District 71 for the past week. Division Directors Robert Brooke and Daniel Sandars in Divisions G and H created a jam-packed itinerary. In total, Aletta attended nearly than a dozen District 71 events! At the majority of these, Aletta led a workshop, so she’s been very busy to say the least!
Aletta Rochat is Toastmasters International’s Region 11 Advisor
We’re delighted that Region 11 Director Aletta Rochat will be visiting us next week. Based in Cape Town, South Africa, Aletta will spend a week in D71. She’ll be visiting clubs and giving presentations to a range of audiences across Division H. After a hectic week, she’ll join the District Leadership Team for training in Manchester at the weekend.
A packed itinerary
Among her stops will be the 15th Anniversary celebrations of Anglia Communicators on Monday 23rd January. An auspicious occasion indeed, Aletta’s presence will be the icing on the cake for this Peterborough, England club. There, she’ll lead a workshop, “How to Prepare a Great Speech when you have NO time to prepare” .
A Toastmasters’ Club has multiple goals. Three of its primary goals are to:
Create a strong, supportive club membership
Enhance members’ speaking skills
Prepare members for real life experiences
