Over 1000 Toastmasters participated in International Speech Contests in South, Central and Northern Ontario since December 2020. Contestants delivered a five to seven - minute speech on any topic of their choice. Caesar, representing Brampton Toastmasters defeated twelve division finalists after delivering an inspirational and emotionally stirring speech titled "Didn't See it Coming".
He gracefully reached out to the other finalists for raising the bar during the contest "I learned so much from all of you. Your messages were crystal clear," he mentioned. "Our personal stories are a gateway to our souls and a pathway to our audience's hearts"
Jocelyne Vezina, District 86 Director congratulated all the speech contestants "Every Contestant showed their skills effectively and performed extremely well despite competing remotely using virtual technology,"
Caesar, a passionate professional public speaker and coach joined Toastmasters in 2011 to improve his communications and leadership skills. He is a founding member of Raising Champions Advanced Toastmasters Club and a member of the Brampton Toastmasters Club
