I should have written this sooner. One of the main events for the Toastmasters in this part of the region. The District Toastmasters Annual Conference or DTAC as it is commonly referred to in Toastmasters circles is a platform for speakers of different nationalities to come on stage and try to compete with each other to become champions of the district.
This DTAC will be held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Abu Dhabi from 21st to 23rd May 2009 for the first time. More than 800 Toastmasters from the 13 Divisions and 7 countries making up District 79 are expected to attend the 21 – 23 May DTAC. The theme for DTAC 2009 is: Developing Leadership & Communication Towards Achieving Strategies. Anyone can attend.
Two amazing speakers are giving speeches, Darren Lacroix and Ed Tate.
Darren is the 2001 World Champion of Public Speaking. He has traveled the world demystifying the process of creating a powerful speech. He has roused audiences in faraway places like Oman, Malaysia, and Taiwan with his inspirational journey from first-rate chump to first-class champ, proving anything is possible if you are willing to work for it.
Ed Tate is the 2000 World Championship of Public Speaking. Ed is an international keynote speaker, author, trainer and facilitator for Fortune 500 companies and associations worldwide. Ed has spoken in 13 countries, and on five continents.
