Introducing Carol Carter DTM: Lieutenant Governor Marketing (14-15)

on . Posted in Latest D21 News

Carol Carter"What do you want to learn this year? Be selfish about your learning." advised my very wise mentor – Pat Johnson. I wish I'd met her when I was 20.

It was a very thought provoking question. What do I want to learn this year? When I joined Toastmasters, I had a purpose – to get rid of my career limiting shakes, sweats, stammers and brain fluff moments, so I could provide leadership and communication workshops for teams and managers. It worked!

Not only that, I learned about different countries in the world, jobs I know I will never do, near death experiences I hope I never have, sports I will never play. Your stories inspire, inform and help all of us gain a little more humanity. What an amazing program we have the privilege to participate in each week, anywhere on the planet! Isn't it good enough to just participate?

Introducing Fai Murray Lieutenant Governor Education & Training (LGET)

on . Posted in Latest D21 News

Fai MurrayI joined Toastmasters in 2008, my curiosity aroused by the enthusiasm my friends and family had for their TM Clubs. I quickly understood why.

Toastmasters Clubs were special places, open for everyone who was willing to venture out to try something new. The commitment was that each would grow in their personal journey to overcome their fear of public speaking and learn the confidence to excel. I saw transformation in others. I experienced the power and renewed energy in my own life.

Announcing! D21 Speakers Bureau!

on . Posted in Latest D21 News

Speakers BureauToastmasters District 21 proudly announces our new Speakers Bureau! A chance to climb out of your usual box and speak in a different place to a new crowd.

We’ve heard members asking for more opportunities to test their speaking skills – new groups, new places. This is one way we can serve our members – by offering a central point where speakers and groups wanting speakers can be connected.

It works quite simply. Speakers let us know their information. When groups wanting a speaker let us know their requirements we try to make a match.
