Toastmasters from Cairns, Innisfail and the Tablelands will be promoting our Clubs at the Cairns Show next week – Wednesday 20th July to Friday 22nd July.  The Toastmasters stall will include a soap-box for spruikers to parade their talents and entertain show-goers.

Twice-winner of the I Love Cairns Speakers Competition, Celia Berrell, will be trialling her latest I Love Cairns speech, titled “Beautiful Butterflies” on Wednesday 20th July.  This contest is open to everyone and will take place on Saturday 20th August from 10am to 2pm at the Pier Shopping Centre in Cairns.  For more info go to

You will find the Toastmasters stall adjacent to Splash Marketing in the showgrounds.  You can pick up information about our region’s Clubs, the art of public speaking and how to have fun while facing your fears.  Toastmaster Club members will be there for the duration of the Show, just waiting to talk to you!
