Toastmasters International got a major publicity boost on Tuesday 3rd January when 5 members were invited to contribute to a special 50th Anniversary programme for RTE1 - Ireland's main national channel.
The 90 minute programme showed small snippets from old programmes interspersed with comments by various individuals regarding the impact that these programmes had on Irish society over the years, and indeed the impact the programmes had on themselves.
Five prominent Toastmasters took part: Ted Coccoran, Fiona Stynes, Eric Fitzpatrick, Gerry French and Barbara Moynihan. They were all excellent and "Toastmasters Ireland" was acknowledged on the credits at the end of the progamme.
A big thanks to all of them from D71 for leading the way in raising our profile!
