Last year’s Toastmasters World Champion of Public Speaking was Presiyan Vasilev. Originally from Bulgaria, Vasilev now lives in Chicago, USA.
A 30 year old sales professional, Vasilev joined Toastmasters 3 years ago and credits the organisation with being ‘the best personal development laboratory you can find’.
He joined 6 clubs and competed in many speech contests before his efforts finally paid off at the Toastmasters Annual Convention last year in Cincinnati, USA. Now he wants to mentor others as a way of paying back ‘the wonderful support of my Toastmaster family.’ Vasilev is another member who has found lasting relationships in Toastmasters.
Here is Vasilev in action with his winning speech Changed By A Tire’.
