Pursue Your Passion

Written by

HarryYan2Welcome to a brand new Toastmasters year! I hope you are as excited as I am about continuing your journey of fun and fellowship in the Toastmasters program. The Toastmasters program has so much to offer, I sometimes feel like a kid in a "Sweet Factory" candy store--scanning a myriad of colorful candy jars filled with chocolate covered gummy bears, gummy fruity dinosaurs, assorted fruit flavored jelly beans, tropical fruit salt water taffy--and can't decide on what to put first in my bag! I hope you have enjoyed a good assortment of fun and friendship as you worked on your listening, thinking, speaking and leadership skills in and outside your club last year--because there is so much more to enjoy in the New Year.

Powerful Messages Delivered

Written by

It boggles the mind to think how many people we casually meet on our daily path who have amazing stories to tell. Toastmasters and the Founder's District Speakers Bureau teamed-up with TEDxYouth@BommerCanyon to coach teens on how to share their stories of achievement and self-discovery.

Congratulations to our many local heroes from the mentors behind the scenes to the young speakers that took center stage and now have a powerful message posted on YouTube.

Featured on the Founder's website are three of the eleven presentations:

Staphany Hou, University high school senior (Irvine), will defend the virtues of well roundedness and disprove Malcolm Gladwell's 10,000-hour rule in his bestseller Outliers.

Gabe Eggerling, at age nine, saw the need for impoverished kids to have access to books and started a library in Peru from the comfort of his home in Huntington Beach.

Mun Jen Ng, a 2013 semifinalist in the Toastmasters International speech contest, shares a timeless tale: the struggle of honoring one's own identity whilst trying to pleasing others.

Patriots and Paws

Written by

PennyLambrightEach year Founder's District presents the prestigious Communication and Leadership award to an individual or local organization that exemplifies the practices of sound communcation and exceptional leadership that is the epitome of the Toastmasters brand.  This year Founder's District is honored to recognize Penny Lambright of Patriots and Paws for her outstanding work in building an organization that provides valuable assistance to the men and women who put thier lives on the line for our country.

Patriots and Paws helps to relieve the burden of stress that our military veterans are feeling by giving them help in the form of home furnishings. Some of these things are as simple as a bed to sleep in, a table to sit at, or dishes to eat with.   Almost all of the veterans who are able to receive housing assistance don’t have the basic items to put in their homes, unless they get them from family or friends.

Only Two Months Left!

Written by

LindaUlrich 2THERE ARE ONLY TWO MONTHS LEFT IN OUR TOASTMASTERS YEAR! We've accomplished so much in those first nine months and yet we still have a lot of work to do.

How often are Project Managers required to be not only leaders, but effective speakers? All the time! Since June 8th, 2010 one of the Project Management Institute (PMI-OC) members, David Shostak, PMP approached the PMI-OC Senior leadership on the possibility of the PMI-OC Chapter helping to support a Toastmasters Club. David, an active Toastmaster himself, realized that there were many benefits to project managers utilizing the Toastmasters program.

Well David is doing it again! He is starting a second Project Managers Toastmasters club in Irvine, CA.
