Division A Club Growth team organized a special session on Fearless Presentations, a talk program. It was held on  Wednesday 13th May 2020 at 5.30 pm onwards online on Zoom by Mark brown, the 1995  World Champion of Public Speaking. Mark Brown is also a certified speaking professional.

There were 839 attendees for the online meeting out of which half were Toastmasters and surprisingly the other half were guests.

Mark talked about his journey in the U.S.A where he had come with 40 dollars in his pocket and 2 sets of dress. He worked hard and now has a good family and has accomplished a lot.

We can learn from his journey that even if you have little resources, if you have the will to work hard, you will succeed.

 He also talked about how he joined Toastmasters after being a guest for 4 months and how he thought he would not be World Champion and thought about giving up, and eventually became a World Champion in 1995. 

One needs to keep on working hard. Even if one falters in a few steps one must stand up, rise and fight. 

Some words of advice and things to learn from the Champion:

It was an exciting session with Mark Brown and the first one by any world champion in Nepal. Appreciate the hard work of Division A Club growth team and others who were involved in coordinating and organizing such an exciting session.  Special Thanks to DTM Suman Shakya for the coordination.
