Stacey Foster of Talk Tsu Toastmasters Club will represent Trinidad & Tobago in the Speech Evaluation category of the District 81 contest in Grenada on October 20th 2012. Her evaluation of Charon Maximé’s Ice Breaker during the Territory round of competition illustrated that Stacey is very studied in the Toastmasters educational programme. Foster’s evaluation spoke to her sharp insight and critical thinking ability. These skills have undoubtedly been honed during the course of work as a human resource professional and also over time given the various Toastmasters roles Foster has served in. She is currently VP Education of Talk Tsu. Other roles served in the past were President (Talk Tsu) and Treasurer. We look forward to hearing from Stacey during the District 81 competition.

Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren
What is your favorite Toastmasters story to relate to someone who has never heard about it?
Sorry, I don’t have a favorite toastmaster story. I have a collection of moments, some good and some not so good but for the most part – good.
If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?
None, I prefer to be real. I prefer to be myself, I spent a lot of time shaping and re-shaping myself, why would I want to be anyone or anything else?

Of course to become a DTM and perhaps repeat the basic manual just for the heck of it.
If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Africa, particularly South Africa or Nigeria. Also Jerusalem and the Vatican. Sorry I could not pick one place.
