How does your experience relate to Toastmasters and the region advisor role:
I know how to help others be successful by implementing, developing and empowering teams to achieve results. I believe we help the newest member, as well as all members, to practice, help and then use those skills to make an impact in their everyday lives.
What is your experience with coaching individuals and/or teams? What key strengths do you bring to the district leaders?
I firmly believe in the team concept: we maximize our strengths and minimize our weaknesses by utilizing teams. One of the most important factors is a leader must know their team members and build trust. If people know one another and trust each other, there is no limit to what can be accomplished and how much an individual can grow. We praise in public and correct privately.
Why are you interested in serving as region advisor?
Toastmasters has developed skills in me I never could have without joining. My current job requires me to stand and deliver to audiences, attorneys, bankers and investors with confidence.
I want to give back to the organization that has helped me so much. I have knowledge and experience to help others take their journey. I would like all districts to be able to stand on the stage as a Distinguished District or better, and I know that all districts are capable of obtaining that goal.
