Brief introduction. I am Paul. I love Marathon training, Running, Triathlons, Photography, and Toastmasters. I’ll be celebrating my 18th wedding anniversary this September. I have 3 birds. 2 cockatiels and 1 parakeet. I live up in Delray Beach, FL but spend a great deal of time in Miami on business. I am excited to meet more Toastmasters. Toastmasters to me is a super positive organization that really EMPOWERS us to communicate and lead in front of audiences LIVE, online, or in written form. We are part of a movement. 142 plus countries worldwide. Over 100 Districts!!!
Over 155 clubs in just Southeast Florida.
BTW, I’m collecting interviews with Fellow Toastmasters. Can I interview you for my Toastmaster podcast?
I am eager, excited, enthusiastic, Ecstatic, Enthralled, elated to be helping 6 clubs in Division E become Presidents Distinguished!!
My goal: Presidents Distinguished in 6 months in 6 clubs plus a 7th as a bonus.
It is very doable. This past year I was privileged to serve our district as a club advocate. Clubs with less than 12 members are eligible for a club coach and clubs greater than 13 members but less than 20 are eligible for a club advocate.
A coach or advocate can be a nice addition and support for a club. Let know if you’d like an extra hand with either. I am happy to arrange the extra assistance. It’s great to have another Toastmaster help fulfill roles and or give speeches to fill your agenda. Just a cool tip to know about.
I helped a club at its renew period go from just 13 members to over 22 to make select distinguished in time before JUNE 30 at the end of Toastmasters Fiscal calendar 2017!
The secret is no secret. ALL clubs can BOOST their membership drives, member speeches, Public Relations and Education goals in a short 4 month period.
That is exactly what we did at a East Boca Raton, FL Club. If your club would like ideas on boosting their member participation, member drives, etc, please do not hesitate to call me.
The best advice I received from my mentors at my home club, West Boca Toastmasters, is the following: Be the best example you can be. Re-read the Toastmasters PROMISE:
Bring your smile to your NEXT Toastmasters meeting. Example is the absolute best way to lead. Speak MORE. Speak often. Let your drive and hunger to speak become catchy. Get other club members inspired by your eagerness to speak. Eagerness to evaluate someone. Someone needs to hear your stories or speeches. Someone is waiting for you to speak because your message is the EXACT message to help a fellow club member, guest, or future Toastmaster.
I am excited to serve as Area 50 Director July 2017-18.
This past Saturday, at the DEC or District Executive committee meeting, All Area Directors in District 47 were officially announced. I am proud to serve Area 50! Here is a short Table Topic video clip of a snippet from a full Sunday with our District leaders 7/15/2017. Continue reading below the video….
Thanks for taking the time out of your busy weekend, day or night to review this message. I know you can be with your family, work, friends and you chose to take the time to invest in yourself, your club, other Toastmasters, etc.
I hope to meet you very soon.
