18 Aug: Kay Price-Lindsay is joint 10th in the World

Posted by LP User on Tuesday, August 21, 2012 Under: Contests
With all of Two Oceans Toastmasters good wishes behind her, Kay winged her way to Orlando last Monday to represent Two Oceans (and Southern Africa) at the International Public Speaking World Champs. She was part of the final group of 9 Semi-Finals held on 16th August and was the last person of the day to speak (talk about pressure)! For the first time in the competition the ballots had to be counted 3 times because the results were so close and in the end Kay was placed 2nd to an American Toastmaster Ryan Avery. This effectively means that Kay is joint 10th in the world in Toastmasters!

Ryan Avery went on to win the Finals on Saturday 18th August which means, had Kay been in a different semi-final group, it is very likely she would have met him on the final stage!

For those of us who watched the finals on Saturday and Kay's semi-final, it was clear that she had a wonderful time giving her speech and that the audience loved it. She really did all of us and Southern Africa proud! A huge thank you goes to everyone who has supported her so wonderfully these last few months. This is what Toastmasters is all about - helping each member to grow and flourish to the best of their ability!
