Copart’s Toastmasters competed at Copart’s Global Headquarters in Dallas, Texas for a chance to represent Copart at the Area 71 Spring Evaluation and International Speech Contest at the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD). Seven contestants participated, but two finalists continued to the next round: CDS Sales Coordinator Anthony Richards and Product Analyst Taskeen Fatima!
On March 16, 2019, Anthony Richards competed in two contests including the Evaluation and International Speech Contests.
Contestants were allowed to give a speech on a topic of their choice. In his speech, “Growth Within a Most Pit,” Anthony was able to engage his audience by allowing his point to be seen through the eyes of someone who had never actually participated in a “mosh pit.” He received great feedback from the audience, even without the use of visual aids.
Anthony placed first in both contests and will go on to the Division V Contest! Congrats, Anthony!
