Growing with JCI - Looking back on experiences gained from JCI

Past JCI Winnipeg member gives his account about his time with JCI, published in SmartBiz.

Thank you for all hard work, your courage and your leadership.

JCI member-to-member mentoring

Natasha Fisher quickly transferred her knowledge and skills as an effective speaker to JCI member Katrina Hueging, who just competed for her place at the Prairie Regional Effective Speaking competition that took place on June 7 in Calgary. Katrina will be competing for the top spot in JCI Canada's Effective Speaking Competition taking place in Ajax, ON in September, during JCI Canada's National Convention.

All the best to Katrina who will be defending Winnipeg's claim to national effective speaking champs, and a chance to represent Canada, as Natasha did, in the next JCI Conference of the Americas, taking place in Cochabamba, Bolivia in May 2015.
