Toastmasters International Past International President Ted Corcoran, DTM, will present a dynamic overview of how communication and leadership skills can enhance your life.

Ted has been a member of Toastmasters International since 1985. Toastmasters is the world’s leading communication and leadership organization. He served as the organization’s International President in 2003-2004, after serving as District Governor of the U.K. and Ireland, and International Director for the rest of the world outside North America for two years. He has spent seven years on the International Board of Toastmasters International.

He has delivered presentations in the U.S., Canada, South Africa, Australia, United Arab Emirates, Germany, Denmark and many times in the U.K. and Ireland.

Anyone who has heard Ted speak will recommend that you attend — you will be informed, inspired and have a lot of fun.

And if that wasn’t quite enough, we will have break-out sessions for the club executive roles, and two additional sessions:

  • Preparing for the new Pathways Program: Sheila Proctor, DTM, will give us an update on the Pathways Educational Program, which is coming to our divisions in fall 2017.
  • Telling your club’s story: Do you have one and if you do, to whom do you tell it? Reen Rose, Gary Johnston and Ross Freake from the Kelowna AM club will spin a yarn on the three aspects of telling that story.

This event is a must for all club executives, but it’s also open to any Toastmasters members. These training sessions help many members feel comfortable enough to stand in club elections. Feel free to invite any of your club members who you think would like to learn more and be inspired.

Your hosts, the Kelowna AM club, and I look forward to seeing you all.

Happy New Year!
