CARRIE VERROCCHIO- DISTRICT 65 CHAMPION MOVES TO SEMIFINALS
Winning speech “Life is short, choose wisely.”
Carrie Verrocchio from Binghamton will be participating in the Toastmasters 2020 International Speech Contest Semifinals in August. Carrie and one of her old marketing peers decided to join Toastmasters club together in 2019. They have been encouraging each other to take every opportunity to deliver speeches. Carrie believes the best way to spend her time is to touch others lives, which is inspired by Carrie’s brother. Carrie’s preparation strategy for speech contests is “Practice, practice and practice.” She takes meaningful feedback from Toastmasters clubs, Facebook Live, coaches and Marketing networks. She learned that using personal stories with a key message can build a very powerful connection with an audience. And She uses “visualization” to build winning moment and keep her mind strong.
The 2020 International Convention will be presented in a first-ever online format with the thrilling highlights and educational insight. Save August 24-29 on your calendar for the virtual convention!
