Division B Spring Contest Winners on their Way to Luxembourg

— by Margarida Brites

On 23 april, the Lille Toastmasters Club organised a terrific event, everything went well! We were so proud of the core team! Now, Luxembourg, here we come!

Our contestants were well-prepared and impressive on stage. There was real emotion with the depiction of traumatising life experiences! The response amongst the public was immediate with real tears. The speeches were very touching when inspiring. And more humoristic when depicting the male-female realities.

Division B hereby proudly presents its contestants that will compete at the District 59 Spring Conference in Luxembourg:
