Former River City Speaker Member Speaks Professionally
Kevin Bracy, professional speaker and creator of his own motivational speaking company, Lifechangers International, got his start at River City Speakers. Kevin started where we all start with his ice breaker speech. While working through his Competent Communicator manual he represented River City Speakers in the Toastmasters International Speech contest. Kevin won not only our club, but the area, division and the District 39 International Speech contests. Kevin is committed to providing a forum for motivational speakers. If you would like to hear Kevin speak, he will be hosting his show, The MonSTARS of Motivation at the Benvenuti Center for Performing Arts in Sacramento on Friday, September 19th at 6:30 PM. The theme is, “Dreaming it is Not Enough…Brace Yourself to do it!” This show is specifically designed to create up thoughts during down times.

Jim & Joanna Durkin Visit PECL Toastmasters in Taiwan
Jim Durkin won Best Speaker while visiting PECL Toastmasters in Taipei, Taiwan. PECL Toastmasters is an English speaking Toastmaster club whose members’ native language is Mandarin Chinese. “It’s always great to visit different clubs but it was doubly exciting to attend a Toastmaster club in Taiwan.” Jim went on to say, “The group was wonderful and the meeting followed the same agenda and an American Toastmaster club.”

Jim and Joanna Durkin visited PECL Toastmaster Club in Taipei, Taiwan while visiting Taipei on business.

The Board of River City Speakers formally invited all PECL Toastmaster members to visit and participate in our club.

RiverCitySpeakers.com Launched!
We are excited to brush-up our website with a new domain, RiverCitySpeakers.com, and a whole new look as well. We hope that the new site will help new members find our club, increase our visibility in the community, and be easier to use (and more timely) to our members. Over the next few weeks we will be soliciting feedback...and if you have something you'd like to contribute--words or photos or files, please let us know!
