Screening of the Movie, Speak and a Panel Discussion

Boston University Medical Campus (BUMC) Toastmasters, located at 72 East Concord Street in Boston is proud to screen the movie, SPEAK, on Wednesday, October 24 at 5:30p.m. as part of the BUMC Toastmasters one year anniversary celebration. The film will be shown in Bakst Auditorium in the Boston University School of Medicine. Please join us for this important event with a R.S.V.P. by October 20th to Yolanta Kovalko (, VP of Membership, BUMC Toastmasters.SPEAK, the movie, is based on the multi-faceted world of Toastmaster International in which 270,000 people strive to overcome their fear of public speaking. The movie follows six unforgettable finalists in the Toastmasters International Speech Contest as they prepare and compete in a grueling contest to be named “The World Champion of Public Speaking.” Katherine Morrison, recently profiled in the Boston Globe, and invited guest to this event, has been on this amazing journey. Katherine, in her own description was actually a very shy child. “The first time I got up to teach a class, I was 22. I thought I was going to vomit. When I was living in Atlanta, I gave a presentation. I was horrible. A woman walked up to me and said, you have potential — but you need a lot of help.” She introduced me to Toastmasters.” Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere. There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success! BUMC Toastmasters meets on the first and third Thursday of each month in room L-109, 72 East Concord Street from 5:00 – 6:15 p.m. BUMC Toastmasters is an unrestrictive all inclusive club and guests are welcome to attend our regular meetings.
