Speech Champion to Speak at Laguna Beach Toastmasters

An award winning speaker is scheduled to speak at the Laguna Beach Toastmasters Club on Monday, July 21 at 6:00 p.m. at the Laguna Beach Library.  The event is free and open to the public.

Daniel Midson-Short, a Toastmaster from Dana Point, will present “Remote Control,” a speech that he is working on perfecting for an upcoming competition.  His speech “Pay Attention” recently won the Toastmasters Founder’s District spring public speaking contest.   He beat out speakers from Los Angeles and Orange County at four levels of competition and will compete in the semi-finals of the Toastmasters world speaking championships in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on August 21.  If he wins, he will advance to the finals on August 23.

Midson-Short, 36, is a Member of three Toastmasters Clubs, Coastmasters and South Orange County Toastmasters in Dana Point and Second Stage Toastmasters Club in Irvine.  His winning speech is about listening to yourself in a world of well-meaning opinions and is the story of his move from Sydney, Australia to the U.S. in 2010.  He joined Toastmasters in 2012.

Laguna Beach Toastmasters is a new public speaking club.  We are hosting open house meetings every Monday at 6:00 p.m. at the Laguna Beach Library as the club continues to build membership.  All meetings are free and open to the public with available parking just west of the library.
