Valpak Hosts Toastmasters Contest

On September 26, Valpak hosted the Toastmasters District 48 Division A Area 12 Evaluation and Humorous Speech Contest (whew, what mouthful!) at the Valpak Manufacturing Center (VMC).

Contestants from Valpak, Jabil, FIS Global and Bankers Financial Corporation Toastmasters clubs battled it out for the best laughs, competing for a chance to advance to the Division A Contest.

FIS Global was a beast, taking home three contest awards:

  • Humorous Speech Winner: Michael M. Williams II
  • Humorous Speech Runner-up: Jeremy Baker
  • Evaluation Contest Runner-up: Ann Morsch

But Valpak held its own, with Jessica Smith (that’s me!) winning the Evaluation Contest.

“Hosting this contest was an opportunity for Valpak to show our commitment to employee creativity, community and empowerment,” shares Valpak GIS Manager and Toastmasters President Jennifer Baird. “Plus, it was a lot of fun!”
