It is with regret that I bear the following news. Fellow Toastmaster Harvey Mayo passed away suddenly on September 30th. For those who knew him, you know what a friend he was. For those in our Toastmasters family that did not know him, let me tell you about Harvey.

Hollywood Here We Come

Written by

Michelle-Obama-web-v1With the success of having more than 30 local city Mayors support and celebrate Toastmasters International’s 85th anniversary, our public relations team reached out and received endorsements from California's Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to several U.S. Senators, Members of Congress, and the First Lady Michelle Obama. Now we're headed to Hollywood!

Phase II of our "brand and expand" publicity campaign has started. Requests have gone out to local, national, and international celebrities requesting their support by performing a brief public service announcement about how Toastmasters has helped more than four million men and women learn to speak with poise and confidence.

In addition to being a wholesome story, it will be a fun and rewarding way of giving back to the community – and positive publicity – while encouraging people to learn tangible career skills.

We're excited about who has signed on so far (details to be released soon) - and we're looking for more. If you know a celebrity or have suggestions for a spokesperson, please contact Michael Varma at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
