Guest Jana Barnhill, DTM, AS President Toastmasters Int'l 2008-2009. Jana takes us beyond the Courage to Conquer - impressing upon us that we all have the potential to do great things. She shares with us about who in her life has influenced her, and how things people say- positive or negative, can impact your life. She explains how's she's different and how she overcame those obstacles. We hear success stories on how others have had the Courage to Conquer. Jana also comes clean about her first interview and trip to the International Speech Contest (Regional) Finals that didn't really work out as planned and why, after 25 years, she's still a Toastmaster. An inspiring, motivating and entertaining conversation with one incredible lady, just following her visit to District 42's Spring Convention in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Canada.

If you've never attended a Toastmasters conference or convention, you don't know what you've missed until you attend your first one - then you're hooked. Why listen to me when you can hear from attendees themselves. Our Guests on today's Toastcast: Ganga Dekka, Colt Discovery, just attended his first. Alex Neilson, New Entrepreneurs Toastmasters, attended 2, and the Idea Man himself, Bob Hooey Accredited Speaker and Past District Governor, who really can't remember how many he attended. When you're done, make sure you also listen to Volume 8 - the D42 Spring Convention. Listen and Enjoy [Vol#9]
