The entertainment will be top class as well. The D-Day Darlings will be performing on Friday evening while the Joe Ringer Band will be performing Saturday evening. The Rock Vox Choir will also be performing during pre-drinks on Saturday evening.
The theme of the conference is, “going back to the 1940s”. People will embrace this theme in many ways. From the traditional 1940s dress the whole weekend to the 1940s Friday evening wear, we just want you to enjoy the 1940 theme.
My friend was very excited about the idea of coming and asked if I knew if there were any more tickets available? I told her that there are still a few tickets available and if she wanted to go then please go to the conference website https://www.norwichconference2019.com to book the ticket and also check on the availability of hotels. I warned her that the conference will be selling out fast so not to delay her booking. She booked immediately so not to miss this exciting experience.
Lastly, bring your club banner with you. Do not worry about the dowels so you can fold your banner and fit it in your hand luggage if flying from Ireland. Please leave your banner when you check in for the conference. You will get it back once the conference is over. I hope to see as many of you as possible during this extraordinary event!
Do not miss out on a weekend of fun, friends and your Toastmaster family.

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.
