LONDON, Ont. — A trucking company executive has won a major Toastmasters speech contest, and credits the organization for giving him the skills required to deal with other executives in the industry.

Roger Caesar, president of Caesar Transport, competed in Toastmasters District 86 in the Humorous Speech category. The district is comprised of 5,000 members across 49 areas stretching from Sault Ste. Marie in the north to Welland, Ont. in the south, and all cities in between, excluding Toronto.

The contest was held Nov. 8 in London, Ont. Caesar has been a Toastmaster for four years and says the experience has helped him develop the skills necessary to interact with other executives. The Etobicoke, Ont.-based company has been in business serving the Greater Toronto Area for 30 years. He hopes to move on to compete on an international level.
