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 WILL BE A SIGNIFICANT AND UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

 

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."

    I think this is a great idea. I believe that everyone has something that they are secretly passionate about and if they are given the opportunity, they will reveal it.

    Thank you Viral for organizing this event tonight and inviting me to do a little presentation, and a big thank you to everyone else for your support. I think this meet-up is a great idea and that it will bring out the best of the best. Groups like this are much needed.

    I'd just like to invite anyone who is interested in learning more about the upcoming presentations and workshops to please contact me.

    Wishing you all health, wealth and happiness

    Hi viral DL. I'm happy to see a toastmasters club focused on making a difference or MAD, as you put it. (I like that acronym). Who's the club sponsor? If the weekly meting time works out with my time schedule, I would be happy to be one of the chartering members.
