AUTHENTICALLY YOU – Division B Conference in Tallinn, Autumn 2019

My first snow this year I have welcomed at Division B Conference!

It was a magical event  held in the beautiful city of Tallin on November 30th. 

“AUTHENTICALLY YOU” conference was about being ourselves and not losing our true identity in the modern world of social media and perfectionism. During the day we revealed our authentic selves in various forms and shapes and got to know ourselves and each other better.

During the workshop by a pitch trainer Gleb Maltsev, we witnessed, how we can transform in just few seconds, by being authentic, natural and sharing our own true stories.

The circling workshop by Maarja-Liisa Karp allowed us to be more aware of ourselves, our feelings and emotions and to increase our presence and connection with others.  The workshop by Ruutu10 Impro Theatre was hilarious – we practiced impro techniques in a fun atmosphere and increased our creativity to the maximum.

The speech contests were the main part of the day, as on every Toastmasters conference. The level of speeches was very high, but eventually the winners of Humorous Speech contest and Table Topics contest were chosen to represent Division B in Vilnius at the District 108 conference.

Now let’s congratulate all DIVISION B Conference winners!
