Welcome to my campaign page for Toastmasters International District 91 Division K director for the year 2016/2017.
Let me tell you my three goals for division k:
#1. Promote Sharing of best practices across areas
The sharing of best practices amongst areas will help members in the division achieve their leadership and communication goals.
This will also be a fulfilment of the district mission of supporting all clubs in achieving excellence.
#2. Provide strong support for New Club planning
I have been involved a new club sponsor and my experience with this has thought me that for new clubs to be successful in chartering, there needs to be a strong backing of the area and division director.
#3. Coach area directors through the Distinguished Area Program
Distinguished clubs lead to Distinguished Areas which lead to Distinguished Divisions which lead to Distinguished Districts.
How will I achieve the above three?
#1. Quarterly email communication with area directors
I will be asking my area directors to simply email me what they have observed that is working well in the clubs they have visited.
I will then assemble this information and include it in a quarterly email communication to my area directors.
We will also dedicate time during the division council meeting for the sharing of best practices.
#2. Asking questions
I am committing myself to asking my area directors on a regular basis the question, “How can I help you with new club planning?” This simple question will keep the issues of new clubs on our agenda at the division council meeting.
Should the area wish to run a SpeechCraft program, I have the relevant experience having been actively involved in running 4 such successfull speechcraft workshops in the last three year
#3. Clarifying goals
With coaching, I will help my area directors unlock their potential by coming up with:
- Clear goals
- Clear priorities
- Clear course of action
