Enjoying this weather? With all this rain I really wish I would have gotten my garden started this year instead of waiting till next.
I wanted to get a quick email out to you all with a few reminders and ideas as we start our new Toastmasters Year.
Melissa is currently running the Facebook group TimelyTalkers. Find it and join.
Dan is currently getting our Twitter underway. twitter.com/timelytalkers Give it a follow and don't forget to RT...if you tweet that is.
John W. has been helping with the meetup.com. Full members please write your bio's and supply to John, along with any photo's of you speaking, or even a video hosted at vimeo.com
Yes, this does seem like a lot ... Social Media is very labor intensive, but the benefits are there. In running just the meetup.com we have already gathered several guests and gained a new member.
These tools work. They just take time, effort and know-how.
To those of you that are new to our group, welcome and we look forward to getting to know you better. Toastmasters is an organization whose core strengths are building confidence and leadership by allowing each member to personally grow at their own pace learning skills such as public speaking, leadership, critical thinking and active listening.
For public speaking I will be presenting July 29th at the CCOB networking group in Batavia on internet video distribution for business. On July 31st I will be presenting at the TLI North in Geneva on the VP-PR role. District 79 has a great write-up on TLI's HERE
I am putting together some article ideas for press releases. If you have an idea, please let me know.
Well, that is enough for now.
Enjoy the week and see you all soon!
