What is your area of expertise? I am a public speaking and leadership trainer
How does your professional experience relate to your role as Chief Reviewer?
Being a public speaking and leadership trainer helps me lead a team and gain experience in leadership. Plus it is a desire for me to recommend Toastmasters to my clients and know that they enter an organization with a professional and high-quality program.
What do you like most about being a translation reviewer for the Toastmasters Pathways learning experience?
Producing high-quality manuals which are taken seriously also by big companies and in the business world. Also it is a lot of fun working in an international team—all driven by similar values and attitudes.
"What I like most about being a lead reviewer is the fact that I can help to enhance the quality of the German translations, especially the consistency of the translation within each project and within the series of the whole project. The Toastmasters education program is a high quality program with a huge impact on members’ lives. That should also be reflected in the quality of the translations."
