Modeled loosely on a district conference, VTM CON is a major event organized by members of online Toastmasters clubs for members of online Toastmasters clubs. The next VTM CON will be held April 23, 2022. See the VTM CON fact sheet for details about speaking and volunteering opportunities.
Featuring 2020 World Champion Mike Carr
When the pandemic forced the 2020 World Championship of public speaking online, Mike Carr demonstrated how to not just cope with the change but take advantage of the medium. (See his speech, The Librarian and Mrs. Montgomery). We’ve asked Mike to share some of what he has learned about virtual presentation technique, while also serving as Master of Ceremonies for our webinar contest.
Be Part of VTM CON
The VTM CON organizers are currently recruiting speakers and workshop presenters (see vtm.toastmost.org/talent/) and volunteers (write to VTM CON 2022 Chair David F. Carr, DTM, at firstname.lastname@example.org).
The next VTM CON is now being planned for Saturday April 23, 2022 (April 24 for friends in Australia), with the schedule split into early and late blocks of programming separated by a 3-hour intermission to allow Toastmasters from around the globe to attend at least portions of the live event.
Register using the button below to let us know you plan to attend. Also sign up for our mailing list (be sure to click the confirmation link you will get by email) to stay informed about the program.
VTM CON opens. First featured speakers and programming, details TBD. Please use the same registration link whether you plan to attend the entire event or just a portion of it.
Attendees are invited to take a break — stretch your legs, get a meal, take a nap, visit with your family. Possibly we will keep the Zoom session open for informal conversations and meetups.
Breaking up the schedule this way also makes it more practical for attendees in locales such as Australia to attend the later session.
VTM CON 2022 continues with more keynote and workshop sessions. Assuming we do our webinar contest as part of the event, it will be held during this time. One proposal is that we would hold semifinals to pick the finalists at one or more events prior to VTM CON. Please use the same registration link whether you plan to attend the entire event or just a portion of it.
Watch the replays from VTM CON June 2021 — then sign up for our email list to get details on the next VTM CON event. The replays are great, but you really want to attend LIVE so you can engage with the speakers and be part of the excitement.

About VTM CON: an Unconference for Undistricted Online Clubs … and Anyone Who Wants to Get Better at Speaking and Leading
Because the leading online Toastmasters clubs were established outside of any district/division/area structure, events like this are an important way of bringing their members together to showcase their most accomplished speakers, exchange ideas and best practices, and learn new skills.
