Congratulations to both our representatives at the Division S contest on Saturday. Eileen and Kevin both performed well and Eileen was the runner up in the International Speech Contest. With her speech, The Hardest Choice, Eileen was on top form but the competition for first place was strong, and she was pipped to the post by Erick Rainey, a longstanding member of Toastmasters and no stranger to the International Contest stage – he has reached the World Championship finals twice, placing third each time.
Congratulations also to Ruth Forsythe from Southside Speakers in Glasgow who won the Evaluation Contest.
Good luck to Erick and Ruth on the next stage of their journey – the District 71 finals in Dublin, 9-11th May.
