JB Convention 2007

The District 51, 14th Convention or better known as JB Convention was held on 27-29th April 2007 in Hyatt Regency Hotel, Johor Bahru.

The event was participated by Toastmaster from all over Malaysia as well as some Toastmaster from all over the world. It was an annual event where there were competition held during the convention. There was International Speech Contest as well as Table Topic Speech Contest.

Besides, delegates even get a chance to meet up with other members of Toastmaster International, exchanging ideas and fellowship to learn more about each club is so educational and exciting!

Programmes throughout the convention includes seminar and talks on how to improve speaking skills as well as building a better speech in public speaking. Generally, it was not about the food of the 5-star rated hotel, neither was it about the nice swimming pool nor the well-equipped gim, it was all about the 'experience' in the convention. Never will it be replaced! Well Done!!

Next year, the convention will be held in Gurney Hotel, Penang.. So, watch out for a more exciting and of course interesting Toastmaster Convention in 2008!

Only 3 of Gurney Toastmaster Club attended the event, but it was definitely a great fun that others missed!! We had great experience there, and here, is our memories~~
