Twice a year our Division hosts a “TLI” — a Toastmasters Leadership Institute. It’s a half-day training event with training sessions for officers and topical sessions of interest to any Toastmaster.
Think you might want to join in? It’s coming up: Saturday, June 25, from 8 a.m. to noon here in Boise. Register and/or learn more about it. See you there!
It was a chilly Saturday morning in late January. We were at Toastmaster Leadership Institute, a twice-yearly event when club officers (and interested members) meet to learn and meet their peers. It was time for the keynote speech. All eyes in the auditorium were on the tall man in the suit as he shared three great truths in a memorable and entertaining way: Remember your REASON, RETOOL and reapply, and Rely on your RELATIONSHIPS.
So I was especially delighted when I spotted him on page 8 of the March issue of Toastmasters Magazine (always recommended reading!). He was nominated for the “Meet My Mentor” article. Congratulations on the well-deserved recognition!
Dwight and his mentee, Sharla Ng, are members of the local “HP Speakeasies” club.
One member who attended a conference last year described it as “invigorating”! What are you doing May 20-21? Learn more about what will be going on in Logan, Utah.
