Autumn marathon “Be the change” – a milestone and motivation to keep on moving

When we chose the theme for our autumn marathon “Be the change you want to see in the world” we meant business. A group of dedicated people from Toastmasters Ljubljana has worked hard to prepare a packed programme to live up to this slogan.

Each and every event participant has gained something: be it knowledge about organizing efficient meetings, keeping the commitment in a club or even a prize in one of the three competitions. We proudly present the winners: In the Speech Contest Nevenka had blown us away with her emotional speech “14 days” and won the first prize. When it came to giving feedback, i.e. the Evaluation Contest, Sanja from Toastmasters Belgrade was the most thorough evaluator and in the Table Topics Contest Neven from Toastmasters Zagreb was voted the most convincing speaker.

Last but not least, Sanela Banović, a devoted doctor, inspired us to live our life to the fullest. According to the participants- opinion her lecture has surely been the highlight of this marathon and we were honored to have her in our midst.
