How does your professional experience relate to your role as Chief Reviewer?
I enjoy working in and with English. Professionally, I worked 37 years primarily in overseas marketing and public relations for an international corporation, involving corporate management, business correspondence, press-releases and corporate report creation as well as dealing with legal professionals. Additionally, I taught 15 years at universities in the fields of business and business English. Such personal and professional backgrounds coupled with the knowledge and personal network obtained through my involvement in Toastmasters for the past 14 years support my fulfilling the role as Chief Translation Reviewer.
What do you like most about being a translation reviewer for the Toastmasters Pathways learning experience?
The role provides an exciting opportunity for me to contribute toward the Toastmasters organization both internationally and in Japan while keeping myself abreast of the progress of the Pathways learning experience.
"It is an honor for me to be a Lead Reviewer and work with such excellent reviewers around the world to improve the quality of translated manuals. In so doing, I hope to help Japanese speaking members improve both their leadership and communication skills so they can realize their dreams."
