Here are three reasons you don’t want to miss it!

Drum_Roll_2It’s the FIRST  Toastmaster event EVER to be held at this location—one of the oldest standing buildings in the Bothell area. A land mark. But it’s NEVER hosted a Toastmaster event until now………be there at this amazing Inaugural Event……..And what better time than Autumn? You’ll be in a mood to go on a hay ride (and Barb McGuire might very well give you one)…….


Drum_Roll_1It’s the FIRST Toastmaster event under the auspices of our very own Area Director, James Collins. We all know what a great guy James is—-let’s support him as only Canyon Park Echoes can do……because we LOVE quiet and hard-working James! Rumor has it, he may even display his talent at calf-roping!


Drum_Roll_SoundIt’s the FIRST Area event where our own (well, we share him with two other clubs) Nasir Kutty will represent Canyon Park Echoes in Table Topics contest. We all know Nasir is never at a loss for a well-turned phrase. Let’s cheer him on as he takes on the Area’s best. And it’s the FIRST Area event where our truly own Linda Whittlesey will compete in the Humorous Speaking contest. Show up to help Linda make everyone laugh.

Bonus!——-You are guaranteed to have  Rip-Snortin’ Fun! Table Topics and Humorous Speaking. Laugh till your sides ache!

“How to Listen Effectively” workshop, conducted by Pat Sultan (ACS, ALS)

Canyon Park Echoes Toastmasters club is pleased to announce the special workshop “How to Listen Effectively.” Conducted by Pat Sultan (ACS, ALS), you will learn tips and tricks to improve your listening skills for more effective communication.

How to Listen Effectively

The Program:

When other people talk, do you listen to what they mean, or do you just hear what they say? Listening is an active skill. Effective listening requires certain techniques for receiving, organizing, and interpreting what has been said. This program will help you recognize and develop these skills. Participants will be provided a workbook for use during interactive sessions.
