Do you quake at the thought of standing up to speak in public? Do you always lose the fight? Fear not. JCI Mayo is hosting JCI Ireland for this year’s spring conference. JCI Mayo openly welcomes past members and senators, and especially members of the public.
The day will be packed full, with public speaking training and debating training in the morning, followed by friendly competitions in the afternoon. With two top class trainers, it is a day not to be missed.
The event will take place tomorrow, Saturday March 21, in the Coast Hotel Westport from 8.45am to 6pm, with optional four course meal at 8pm. Tickets can be purchased at jcimayo.eventbrite.ie
