Toastmasters and the public will gather in Brampton to watch the Southwestern, Central, and Northern Ontario Representative vie to be the World Champion of Public Speaking® from the Toastmasters International Convention in Chicago.
By: Toastmasters District 86
Tickets are now available for the free event, open to the public, which will live stream Caesar in semifinal 3 along with 10 other competitors. The 11 contestants from all over the world deliver 5- to 7-minute inspirational speeches that are evaluated by a panel of experienced Toastmasters. After a year of competing in club, area, district and semifinal competitions, these contestants have advanced for the chance to win this prestigious accolade.
The Toastmasters International Speech Contest began in January 2018 with more than 30,000 contestants giving presentations in local clubs. They then polished their oratory skills while advancing to area, division and district levels. The district-level competitions took place throughout the month of May, where 106 semifinalists are chosen to represent their districts and compete in the semifinals in August.
The competition culminates with the World Championship of Public Speaking® on Aug. 25 in Chicago, Ill., with 10 finalists out-speaking each other in attempts to become the next Toastmasters World Champion of Public Speaking.
To advance to this year's semifinals, Caesar won the District 86 competition on April 29, 2018, his third trip to the semifinals in four years. Caesar, an international award-winning speaker, is a member of Brampton Toastmasters and Raising Champion Toastmasters. His Toastmasters journey started in 2011 with the intention of improving his communication and leadership skills. He has so far won four District Speech Contests, including the District 86 Humorous Speech Contest in 2014 and the District 86, International Speech contest in 2015 and 2016.
He heads Caesar Transport Inc. and has a busy schedule running his business while delivering motivational speeches at many educational institutions and corporate organization across North America and the Caribbean. He has a growing passion to give back to his community, especially the youth. "I want to help others to develop their speaking skills and maximize their greatness"
