Make Some Waves - D85 Toastmasters' Conference in China

June 24, 2018

“Without the members, this conference is nothing. Let’s make some waves and become better together!”

From May 18th to May 20th 2018, the D85 Toastmasters Conference took place in Wuxi, China. As an official video partner, our video production team in China worked hard to cover the 3 day event – which included an international speech contest, education sessions and a keynote speaker workshop by Lark Doley, the President E-lect of Toastmaster International.

Yet, although our primary focus was to record the prestigious event, we were presented with quite an educational treat! Listening to the international speakers, observing the education sessions and being part of the workshops gave us valuable insights into public speaking and communication skills.

Here’s our Co-Founder, Roger Su Xiaodong, with the winner of the International Speech Contest.

All-in-all, Make Some Waves taught us that delivery is an important feature in communication, especially in the video production industry – as to clearly demonstrate the key messages of a video; from script to screen can sometimes pose as a daunting challenge, but not one we shy away from. Which is why when the opportunity arose for us to be more involved in a positively enriching event such as Toastmasters, we leapt at the chance to improve our communication skills, by learning from experienced professionals. Thank you Toastmasters International for this wonderful experience working together!
