Evening with Mark Brown!

It was an amazing evening for District 8 with 1995 World Champion of Public Speaking, Mark Brown! He was inspiring, full of tips and suggestions for aspiring speakers of District 8. He shared his journey with humble honesty. He connected with audience at a personal level. It was an standing room event with over 90 members who attended the event, some of them drove for 2 hours one way on a week night and some arrived an hour earlier from Illinois and Missouri, to beat the rain and traffic. Kudos! to all D8 members, Lora, David and Webster University students. Thank you Mark, for making it memorable for D8!
