Speakers, Lewisham Methodist Church, the air buzzed with anticipation
and excitement as one of our guests, a Transatlantic Toastmaster had
been gently reserved to speak.
We were not disappointed.
Garret Garrels, the D78 International Speech winner from Helena,
Montana and a semi-finalist in Las Vegas in 2011, shared with us his
personality, speaking prowess and charisma as he delivered a heart
felt speech, his entry for the World Championships of Public Speaking.
Garret’s speech was based on overcoming a personal obstacle in his life and as
he masterly delivered his speech we were transported out of the UK to
a cold day in Sweden; we shivered with him, and laughed with him
as his story unfolded.
We wish Garret much good luck as he continues on his Toastmaster
journey and competes in Orlando, Florida later in the year.
