Quite simply, SteelHaven is different. It is not surprising that the ethos has deep-rooted values of developing leadership and promoting public speaking skills because the committee members are all experienced Toastmasters, with a number of conferences under their belts.
Yet SteelHaven is inclusive, as you don’t need to be a Toastmaster to attend. Everyone is welcome, whichever speaking club they belong to, and those not affiliated to any club.
As a non-official Toastmaster Conference, there is the freedom to stretch the boundaries and try new things, such as the “I’m A Toastmaster, Get me Out Of Here!” competition.
