Become a better you! Become a District Leader next year!

“District Leadership gave me confidence” is what I answered when I was recently asked what becoming a District leader did to me. Stepping up to become Area Director, Division Director and later a member of the District Trio offered me plenty of opportunities to learn new skills, expand my comfort zone and become a more confident person. Opportunities such as:

  • Leading our District of 180 clubs during a time of crisis.
  • Organising several events, some attended by over a hundred people.
  • Training hundred of our club leaders at Club Officer Training events and Toastmasters Leadership Institutes.
  • Creating strategic plans to support the growth and excellence of our District.
  • Working directly with fellow leaders within our clubs, our District and even internationally!

Thanks to these opportunities and all the doors they opened to me, I was able to overcome my shyness and some of the mental blocs I had in my life that prevented me from moving forward. The more I think about what changed inside me, the more I realise how these changes stemmed from the confidence I learnt as a leader in Toastmasters.
