Even though this event is designed to teach Club Officers about their responsibilities, all Toastmasters are invited to attend to learn leadership skills. You will enjoy networking and getting to know your Toastmaster friends.

Special guest speaker Wendy Williamson, Region 6 Advisor, will be at the event in person. The title of her session is Working in a Team Environment. Here’s what to expect: 

Four Key Elements a Team Must Have to be Successful
  • Commitment: Empower with ownership of roles, Execute responsibilities successfully, Energize with respect and humor 
  • Communication: Share freely, provide feedback, encourage participation
  • Collaboration: Establish common objectives, share planning and work, rely on each other for advice
  • Conflict Resolution: Solutions and techniques

I joined Toastmasters in February, 2016 because I wanted to learn how to feel comfortable speaking in public and talking about my new art business called ArtistEntrepreneurs.org. Since then I have given speeches to large and small groups, recorded webinars for online distribution and held workshops for artists who are interested in learning what I know about the "business of art." Toastmasters has helped me to become comfortable in any environment and to take on leadership positions with success. I had no idea how far Toastmasters would take me and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to learn and grow with the encouragment of fellow professionals. For the Toastmaster year of 2019-2020, I was awarded Toastmaster of the Year after taking on many leadership roles at the district level.
