By Red Skelton DTM, Conference Team Member

Dear Fellow D71 members,

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”

If you can get to London on Saturday 15 July, you will be treated to a day-long spectacular known as the “Road to Vancouver”. You’ll be supporting our D71 International Speech Contest champion Vinette Hoffman-Jackson, as she prepares for the world’s biggest stage! Vinette will be representing us at the World Championship of Public Speaking in Vancouver in August! Come along Saturday as she delivers her speech alongside the other European champions.

Besides hearing Vinette and the other champs, there will be a World Championship panel moderated by Iain Hawkins featuring former WCOPS finalist Olivia Schofield.

There will also be an evaluation masterclass by Taz Miah, and Antonio Meza’s world-class keynote. The organisers promise another surprise, for a truly spectacular Saturday.
