“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals”, Zig Ziglar (recognised as one of the greatest motivational speakers and recipient of the Toastmasters International Golden Gavel award in 1999).
Happy New Year and welcome to the second half of the toastmaster year 2018-19. Whatever your toastmaster goal is you have just under six months to achieve it. My wish for all members and all clubs is that you achieve your goals this toastmaster year.
A healthy club means more members and a better toastmaster experience for all. Lark Doley, International President of Toastmasters International, has introduced the #WowFactor program for clubs for 2019.
To increase the quality & performance of every club and to get members to think and say “Wow!” when they attend a meeting.
In January/February use the Club Quality Checklist or Moments of Truth to carry out a deep analysis of your club’s health. Find any gaps or areas of weakness. Club officers and members should work together to address any weak areas. Get on board with the District PR Manager Daniel Sandars’ incentives and hold Open House nights. Aim to make your club “the best club possible”.
Have fun and send in a one-minute video of your club’s unique “Wow!”
experience using #wow!factor. Let’s put District 71 on the map internationally by sending in “Wow!” videos and copying them to Daniel Sandars – Daniel Sandars, District 71 PR Manager – so they can be put on the District’s Facebook page and website.
By March, every club should have achieved the “wow!” factor and should aim to ensure that every member and guest has a “wow!” experience when they attend your club.
