How does your experience relate to Toastmasters and the region advisor role:
My mission is to work with each district's executive team and provide training, coaching, collaboration and guidance. This would be a continuation of what I do for the executive team of my existing district. My listening skills allow me to be a sounding board for their ideas and I can contribute my personal experiences as well. I will be there to cheer them on as they work to make their district successful.
What is your experience with coaching individuals and/or teams? What key strengths do you bring to the district leaders?
I have mentored both individuals and teams throughout my professional and Toastmasters career. I have provided them with suggestions and guidance to help them to improve themselves, elevate their self-esteem, and bring forth their leadership qualities. I have also coached a number of Toastmasters who have become competitors in the speech contests, including two who have made it to the international level.
Why are you interested in serving as region advisor?
I believe that I can bring my expertise and energy to others while I meet and greet other district leaders. I am an excellent trainer and I can analyze and interpret facts about progress. For me, it's the next step for growth in my career as a Toastmaster: to become more of a part of this family.
