high-level executives. He inspired us to start asking WHY, WHAT, and HOW when crafting the message. Charley then related this strategy to pitching Toastmasters to prospective organizations – especially corporate businesses.
Up next, Mark Lucas, DTM, PRA inspired us with the top things to focus on in the final 90 days of the year. These include public relations (PR), working the program, and being self-governing. PR should contain targeted information that you want the members to act on. Minimize including too much information in one message for the sake of only sending one email per week – messaging may get lost. Work the program and your district success plan. Minimize efforts that do not support the strategy. Self-govern in times when decisions are made that everyone may not agree with but are necessary.
Rosario Delfin, DTM, CGD-100 led Table Topics with insightful questions that prompted idea-sharing across the region for staying focused over the next three months.
Lastly, we welcomed two new members, Brad Stauffer, DTM, PDD-1, and Keith Jackson, DTM, PQD-1.
We look forward to seeing everyone at our next meeting on April 2, 2023 when we kick off our final 3-part series of the year, “Finish Strong and Pay It Forward.” April’s meeting will focus on Part I: Operations and Planning. Please register on our homepage, www.club407toastmasters.org.
