Toastmasters Announces Lisa Nichols as Keynote Speaker for 2023 International Convention in The Bahamas

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., June 14, 2023  /PRNewswire/ -- Toastmasters recently unveiled renowned speaker, media personality, and corporate CEO, Lisa Nichols as the keynote speaker for its 2023 International Convention, held at the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar Resort and Convention Center in Nassau, Bahamas Aug. 16-19 and as a hybrid event. Nichols has a global platform that reaches over 80 million people in more than 170 countries, and her social media following is more than 1.9 million.

Nichols' goal – her mission, her passion – is to jumpstart people who feel stuck, people who know they can achieve something but are intimidated or overwhelmed by where or how to begin. She sees herself as the ignition to help people reinvent themselves, to create second chances, and to get up after failing.

Her workshops and programs have impacted and inspired entrepreneurs, speakers, authors, and countless others who were held back by their mindset. She's done the same for thousands of businesses across the globe.

Nichols will deliver her keynote presentation, "Jumpstart Your Greatness," from the main stage on Aug. 16. Nichols hopes her speech will inspire and empower Toastmasters' members to overcome obstacles or challenges they might be facing in any aspect of their lives.

"We couldn't be happier that Lisa Nichols will help us to kick off our highly anticipated 2023 International Convention," says Matt Kinsey, Toastmasters' 2022–23 International President. "Lisa is a dynamic speaker with a great message that is sure to inspire our members."
