g1736_1685_nick_bailey_businesscardHaving been an Area Director this year I am very passionate about supporting and training next year’s Area Directors. In return, these Area Directors will be better able to support their clubs in their area as I have done this year.

 My Toastmaster Experience

I have been a Toastmaster for nearly 11 years. More recently I held the committee roles of Sergeant at Arms, VP Education and Club President of Maidenhead Speakers. For the last two years I was mentoring coordinator, a role I particularly enjoyed. I created beginner’s workshops and watched new members improve dramatically in confidence once they were able to practice in small intimate groups with the ability to get instant feedback, something not possible in club meetings. The benefits of these workshops were that participants gained greater confidence quickly, workshop leaders practiced leading and the club as a whole benefitted from members who felt better supported and of course the speaking standards became even higher.
