We are in the District 97P of Toastmasters International which is a provisional district comprising Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam. Members in our District 97 come from more than 30 countries and all share two things in common: improving our communication skills and enjoying meetings for two hours every week or two weeks.
We offer a program of communication and leadership projects designed to help people learn the arts of speaking, listening, and thinking through a worldwide network of meetings. The meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere. Currently, there are more than 40+ clubs in District 97P and many more new clubs are coming nearly soon within our district.
In addition, there will also be Toastmasters conferences in our district which features public speaking and leadership development workshops and fabulous speech contests, such as International Speech Contest, Table Topics Contest, Evaluation Contest and Humorous Speech contest.
