Review of 2016 LACE Chapman

Written by

GlennYaukochi

Another great LACE event. Maybe the best one ever.

The day started with our keynote speaker, Ricky Powell, DTM speaking about the three top skills for discovering happiness. At the start of his presentation, the power on campus went out. What a challenge for Ricky. To teach us about happiness during our darkest hour. As Toastmasters we learn how to overcome obstacles by not panicking as we make our adjustments. Ricky is as skilled as they come in these situations. His presentation was PowerPoint based, but he continued on without missing a beat. He challenged us to choose to be victors and not victims. Ricky led us out of the dark with his three top skills for discovering happiness: serving others, forgiveness, and gratitude.

Dr. Ralph Smedley, the founder of our organization, sponsored the first permanent Toastmasters club in Santa Ana during the fall of 1924. About a year later, in the fall of 1925, a guest from the nearby town of Anaheim attended the Santa Ana club. This visit signaled a new direction for Smedley’s Toastmasters idea. The creation of a second club, and in a few years, a multiplying of more clubs, secured its lasting establishment. Essentially, Toastmasters doubled in the number of clubs in little over a year, all happening in the Founders District (although Founders District would organize later, in 1944).

Maximize Your Toastmasters Journey – Practice Transferable Skills

What are transferable skills? Why do they matter?

Last month, Danny Ly, current club president of Table Talkers, was giving a speech about four core values of Toastmasters International: Integrity, Respect, Service, and Excellence. Danny is a successful young entrepreneur who owns two 7-11 stores. In his speech, he shared a story about how he revealed the core value of “accountability” with his employees.

In 1988, Mackay wrote his first book, Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive and was on the New York Times bestsellers list for 54 weeks and has sold over 5 million copies. Mackay began his public speaking career following the release of Swim with the Sharks. Mackay’s second book, Beware the Naked Man Who Offers You His Shirt, was published in 1990. It reached number one on the New York Times bestsellers list on February 25, 1990. The New York Times listed both books in its top 15 most motivational books of all time in August 1996.

In 1993, Toastmasters International named Harvey Mackay one of its top five speakers in the world.

Toastmasters Survey As An HPL Project

Written by

JenniferKwan

What do individuals benefit most from their Toastmasters experience?
What can we do to make Toastmasters a better experience for individuals?

The Toastmasters Survey was conducted Fall 2015 to explore what works well and what could be improved upon to make Toastmasters most beneficial for individuals. In total, 91 responses were collected from members, former members, and guests from mainly the Founder’s District area. The greatest number of survey participants were club officers and members, which will help us get a good inside look at the club level experience.
