How I have benefited from my Toastmasters experience
I have learned the skills of presenting effectively in front of an audience and online. In particular, practicing speaking off the cuff has been a brilliant skill to develop. I have undertaken a number of leadership roles which have been very beneficial in progressing my career. I have also enhanced my network as a result of membership and I continue to establish excellent working relationships with wonderful members from all over the world.

What most excites me about my District role
I love the challenge of being involved in initiatives I would not normally encounter in my current career. I also really enjoy the camaraderie and team spirit at the DLT level along with learning new skills from the Leadership Team.

What I would say to someone considering a Toastmasters leadership position is....
A leadership position in Toastmasters gives you a fantastic opportunity to learn and grow. By the end of your term, you will not believe how much you have progressed and achieved.
