I was the token motivational speaker at the Toastmasters district 65 conference in Niagara Falls, New York yesterday. My session had a full room to a great audience. I did about 45 minutes with time for questions to fill in the full hour which is longer than other district conferences. The conference was held at the Seneca Niagara Casino Hotel which had superb facilities including built in screen and computer projectors (and not to mention free garage parking). Niagara Falls turned out to be a great location being so close to the border.
The Q&A session was also active with questions ranging from my personal and professional history, Toastmasters background, availability to present to clubs and martial arts. The conference organizers set up a table for me outside the seminar room so I could sell my Life Champion In You books and CDs which were widely received by many interested members of the audience.
A very well organized and speaker friendly district. Kudos to Melinda and the rest of her team at district 65 for putting on a great conference! It was great to meet and have some positive impact on so many people from the western New York area.
