M.A.D. TM: Making a Difference ToastMasters ;-)

Do you want to make a difference by speaking more effectively?

Have you had an ambition that was not achieved because you didn't communicate effectively enough?

Do you want to become a more effective public speaker & support like-minded, good-hearted change-makers, by helping them do more good?


Toastmasters is a global non-profit organization that has been in place for over 50 years, served millions of people, by supporting people's desire to strengthen and sharpen their speaking skill sets.

Toastmasters can be transformational on an individual level, and I would argue has been a nominal impact on a global level. Which I believe will be changed, if we Dream Global, and Begin Local. By starting a new club for people who want to make a difference. Make a difference in whatever cause inspires your passion, focuses your intelligence & drives your ambition.

If you want to be the best of what you can become, to share the best of yourself to a cause greater than that of your own life. Then this club I am in the seed stage of starting is a good place to start.


Trust me when I say that....


This could be a really fun project, opportunity for lots of laughs, learning, meeting lovely people and leave a lasting legacy.


In the words of the Ralph Smedley, who conceived, created and helped construct Toastmasters,`We realize that the two most important factors in Toastmasters is Mentoring and Evaluations, there is no doubt that if these two are done well and there is a good Mentoring program, your club will be filled with spark plugs ready to fire upon request. Mentoring and evaluations create enthusiasm, and once you light that fire the only thing it needs is some kindling."

    Hi Folks I've updated the agenda..

    Please come prepared to spend 30 sec talking about who you are, why you came here and where you want to make a difference.

    From 6:20 to 7:45 we'll be part of a Toastmaster meeting.

    When this meeting ends. Then there will be a separate meeting totally unrelated to Toastmasters.

    From 7:50 pm to 8:45, those who choose to stay will be part of a Crowdsourcing meeting.

    These are TWO SEPARATE MEETINGs. And this is the LAST TIME time they will be held on the same night, in the same space.

    For more info about the Crowdsourcing meeting, please check out this link

    Please come on time & Have a Great day:-)
    Thank You

    Trust me, this is an early step in doing something that will make a significant and unique difference.
