What key strengths do you bring to the District leaders?

I bring unique perspectives from not only my Toastmasters journey, but my career in strategic thinking, operational/tactical planning, project and program management, coaching, and training.

Why are you interested in serving as Region Advisor?

I'm not done. This year, each of my Districts are focusing on stability and stopping the hemorrhaging of clubs that started with (or before) the pandemic. As we continue to build a stable base, the continuity of having the same Region Advisor will allow the Districts to build upon the level ground. And, for me, it is a way of seeing things through. This is my learning year, going through the storming and norming phases with the District leadership team. Next year will be our forming phase, allowing them (and me) to grow as leaders and communicators.
