Leading in a Non-Profit Organization
Leadership in a non-profit organization is significantyly different than leading in a business that is responsible to its shareholders. To be successful - to move an entire group of volunteers toward a single Vision - the leadership skills require a more deftly managed deployment. These leadership skills demand a more focused effort on maintaining the value each volunteer finds for himself/herself.
Julie Broady is on the executive board of Project Echo. In this workshop she will give us examples of the power to influence using the leadership skills found in Toastmasters.
Speech Contest Leadership
Many people know that speech contests help members develop their communication and presentation skills. But not everyone is aware of the leadership opportunities that contests provide.
In this seminar, Cliff will share how Toastmaster members can put their skills to practical use by helping with the organization and conduct of speech contests.
When it comes to Toastmaster speech contests, Cliff is familiar with both sides of the coin. He has competed at the club, area, division, and district levels and has participated in the Humorous, Tall Tales, Evaluations, Table Topics, and International Speech contests. He has also organized speech contests at these same levels, in both the traditional, in-person and online settings.
Cliff Shimizu is a Distinguished Toastmaster with over 20 years of experience as a member of both community and corporate clubs. He has served as an area director and was named the 2016-2017 Division Director of the Year. In 2020, he was the recipient of the Lawrence Gregory Mentorship Award.
Step into The Basics – clarify the Paths, the Levels, and test the new idea of grouping some of the Paths together to better understand what they deliver to the Member. Understanding this will guide you in helping each Club Member find the Value they seek in Toastmasters.
Move on to The Experience: this is where you will learn how each Path connects to our real life, whether in business, with your family, or engaging in your hobbies… Pathways will take you there.
