I am busy here these days promoting the King's Speech and stuttering. The Croatian premiere was on Tuesday, Feb 1st.

 

We had our association's logo on the British Embassy invitations to the premiere, on the film posters, flyers about stuttering that we printed, our representative Vladislav Hinst gave a speech at the premiere, our national football team coach Slaven Bilic and famous pop musician Gibonni, both PWS, were our guest there and had talked to many journalists, the British ambassador mentioned us in his speech at the premiere, we are talking about stuttering on the national and local TV and radio stations, magazines, daily newspapers ... I am rather proud of work we've done so far... The best result of all, however, is that one of our members, an almost graduated SLT and PWS, Ivana Cohan, has got a job as a school-based SLT after participating in two TV programs for the first time, thanks to the King's Speech!
