Mine Your Story

On May 5 & 6, 2017, we will host the conference “Mine Your Story” right here in Park City! This conference offers training from seasoned national and local experts on how to use story in our professional and personal lives.

For $109 through January, $119 from February – April, and $129 in May, you will get three keynotes, at least three different breakouts, attendance and possible participation in a Moth-like STORYSLAM, scavenger hunt on Main Street, socials, live music, three meals, snacks, and attendance to two speech contests. This event is a Toastmasters conference for the states of Utah and Idaho and you will also be able to learn what value involvement in a local Toastmasters club can also bring to your personal and professional life. Club involvement takes lessons learned at a conference and gives us opportunity to practice and refine new skills and ideas on a regular basis; the local Toastmaster club experience is the best self-improvement deal in town!

margaretMargaret Watts Romney – Listening to life experience, pinpointing a powerful idea, supporting the creation of a talk, and preparing for the stage is the process I love to take speakers through. Then watching an audience see our city through new eyes and expand their understanding of the world is the icing on the cake.
