 White Mountain Toastmasters Gallery of Winners
PLYMOUTH—White Mountain Toastmasters had a host of winners, including Bob Stark, a local business owner doing his first prepared speech, and Kristen Gould, an environ- mental engineer and experienced Toastmaster whose speech was both informational and inspira- tional.
Prepared speeches are the heart of the Toastmasters pro- gram. Members choose their top- ics based on their goals, values, and interests. To support learning and personal growth, Toastmas- ters provides a professional online platform called Pathways.
