Roger Caesar visit at Glen Abbey Toastmasters

On May 8th, Glen Abbey Toastmasters had the pleasure of welcoming guest speaker Roger Caesar to our club. Roger Caesar is a 4-time District 86 Speech Champion, a 3-time international award winning speaker and a 3 time semi finalist at the World Championships of Public Speaking. He is also a motivational speaker who helps others to develop their speaking skills and maximize their greatness. In 2018, he was the recipient of the City of Brampton Volunteer Award for helping start up entrepreneurs.

Roger wowed our club with his inspirational message in a speech titled "Didn't See it Coming!". He talked about the personal struggles he has gone through, and how we all need to look past the "small picture" failures and focus on the "big picture" - what we truly want out of our lives - in order to keep pushing forward and succeeding.
