INTRODUCTION TO ATHLETE LEADERSHIP WORKSHOP
February 16th saw eighteen athletes along with 14 mentors attend an Introduction to Athlete Leadership workshop in Special Olympics Ireland HQ. Drogheda Toastmasters delivered a workshop on Public Speaking whilst Audrey Hutton, athlete leader and Regional Committee member presented on getting involved in Athlete Leadership. She spoke about her own experiences and the benefits she has attained through Athlete Leadership.
The day was a fantastic success and we hope to see many of those athletes that attended become Athlete Leaders themselves in the near future.
