It’s time to register for Round 2 Club Officer Training, full of practical information to help you help your members get the most out of their membership – and help you find new members. Make sure all seven of your club officers attend this Toastmasters Leadership Institute event on November 19, which will:
- bring you bang up to date with our District’s progress and news
- offer highly focused Club Officer Training that zeroes in on achieving member and club succcess in the next six months
- include a wonderful presentation by Lark Doley, past Toastmasters International President, that uses Simon Sinek’s principles of “Start with Why” to give us all vocabulary, ideas, strategies and motivation to achieve more in the next six months.
Why did you join Toastmasters? Why do you stay?
Simon Sinek is an internationally recognized speaker and author of five books, including “Start with Why – How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action”, which inspired Lark Doley to create this presentation. We will explore the “Why” behind Toastmasters and our membership in this organisation, and learn about the MIDAS touch based on heart-led leadership.
If you want to be reinvigorated and help new members discover why Toastmasters can help them achieve their goals, this presentation is for you!
Distinguished Toastmaster Lark Doley served as the 2018-19 Toastmasters International President. She worked as a Marketing Manager for Texas Instruments, then owned her own computer peripheral hardware manufacturing business for twelve years, and finally retired in March 2021 after working as a Training Manager for Maximus. Her lighthouse home was built by her late husband Roger Storer in honor of her late father-in-law Arthur Storer. Roger and Arthur were born in Nottingham, England, where they acquired their love of the sea, and both were active members of Toastmasters. A Toastmaster herself since 1990, Lark often wears Golden attire at Toastmasters events to signify the Golden benefits of Toastmasters.
