Davis Golds – current European public speaking champion, Vice-president of Public Relations for the Riga Toastmasters Club and a member of Toastmasters International, the largest public speaking organization in the world.
Ever since childhood he has been obsessed with creative writing and story-telling. As a teenager, he took up public speaking as a way to express himself and share his stories. Despite his continuing stage fright, he has fallen in love with presenting in public.
Davis believes that Latvians’ rich story-telling traditions have been somewhat overlooked when compared to their folk songs and dances. His goal is to encourage as many people as possible to tell their stories and break the stereotype that Latvians are quiet and reserved people.
