What makes a great Toastmaster?

Examples are abundant in our Division G, and recently I was honored to present the ‘Distinguished Toastmaster’ Pin and Badge to Gayle Larkin – one of those great and amazing Toastmasters.

During my visit to her club – Possibilities Unlimited Toastmasters Club – I discovered a vibrant and welcoming club filled with both experienced and new members, supporting each other with fun and enthusiasm for success.

Thinking back to the question… What makes a great Toastmaster?  There are many answers to this simple question, but first and foremost it is about you!  Yes, you – and other men & women just like you who walk into a Toastmasters meeting – not knowing what to expect – yet finding a true passion for their personal development in leadership and speaking skills.

The journey begins with a few words, gradually expanding into thoughtful and dynamic speaking.  Each speech is a stepping stone – but where does it lead?  Only you can answer that… for some it is the challenge to become an excellent public speaker; for others it may be perfecting leadership skills that lead to a promotion.  Through your own actions and commitment you will achieve the highest level of success a Toastmaster can realize – just like Gayle.
