My occupation is that of a systems analyst and software design. You can say that I was at the forefront of introducing computers in the workforce having been in that role since 1974 (before apple and Microsoft). That may give my age away but it also says that I am generally behind the concept of innovation and believe that youth is the greatest element of vibrancy in any club. Without youth there is only stagnation.
My passion in Toastmasters is to ensure that Presidents and Coaches or those choosing to be either are aware of the tools that are generally not included in the glossy guides to steer /maintain healthy, vibrant and dynamic clubs.
I started my Toastmaster career in 2002 in Townsville north Queensland D69. It is now 2018 and as I write this I am President of Bunbury Toastmasters and Club Coach of Mandjar Toastmasters WA. My path has moved from speaking, to leadership and finally I am content as a mentor and coach a role that combines all the skills that Toastmaster provides.
I hope you find a gem that will assist you and if you believe you have a gem to share then let me know and I will post it for you.
