Igniters celebrate with all of District 42 one last time. The Spring Convention in Red Deer celebrates the growth in District 42. Starting July 1, 2016 we will have two Districts 99 (N. Alberta and N. Sask) and District 42 (S. Alberta & S. Sask). The theme of the Convention was Looking Back, Moving Forward.
Keynote Mark Brown - World Champion of Speaking shared How to Make your Stories Come Alive. Tips: 1) Make your 1D speeches a 3D experience. 2) Give an experience - audience needs to see, feel, hear, taste, touch. Choose your words carefully. 3) Don't tell us story - take us into your story.
Friday - Retro night. Pink Ladies Rock!
Sat - Masquerade Ball, Igniters celebrate Diane achieving her DTM.
It was a memorable weekend enjoying the International Speech Contest and the Evaluation Contest. Learning, networking, and growing as leaders.

On this beautiful day we were pleased to have 22 Igniter's, 2 past members and 3 guests at the meeting to hear two speeches from the Competent Communication Manual.
Ellen gave her CC#10 speech "Your Choice" and shared with us a presentation she will be giving to a group of high school students. She shared the difference between our goal and our purpose here on earth and with the excellent addition of her slide presentation, we were able to learn how to apply the information to our lives.
We were fortunate to hear Kenneth's CC#1 Icebreaker speech "My Love For Books" where he walked us through parts of his life and shared some of his favorite books and how they applied to his life. He ended the presentation by finally taking the lid off of a box he had placed in the centre of the floor and surprised us by telling us that the empty box had contained his FEAR (false evidence appearing real)
