In this episode we interviewed András Baneth founder of speakerhub.com.
András believes in the power of live presentations and personal connections, which is why he created SpeakerHub together with others. They are not a speaker agency but the fastest-growing community of professional, independent, or amateur public speakers and trainers who’d like to be found by companies, event organizers and schools. They welcome anyone with expertise in any field who is open to speaking at conferences, events or schools as a paid or pro bono presenter.
We talked with him about how Toastmasters could benefit from speakerhub. What are advantages or disadvantages. Stay tuned.
During the District 59 Spring conference I talked to Morag Mathison, Lt. Governor in the Toastmasters year 2011/2012. Like Barbara also Morag was heavily involved in man yactivities around the conference, hence, it was difficult to get time for an interview as well 😉
We wish her all the best for her new role as Governor of District 59!
During the District 59 Spring conference I talked to Barbara Hoerger, District Governor in the Toastmasters year 2011/2012. Barbara was heavily involved in man yactivities around the conference, hence, it was difficult to get time for an interview 😉
She talks about her personal highlights of the year, expectations and challenges she had to master during her role as District governor.
During the District 59 Spring conference I talked to Mark Hunter, World Champion in Public Speaking of 2009. Mark gave the two keynote speeches at the conference and was the main reason why so many participants got up early after short nights. He talked about how to handle adversity, challenges and gave advice how to prepare for the upcoming speech contests in fall.
After our few Easter words in here and on Facebook about the realignment and the importance of ‘’letting it be’’ in order to get on with the real purpose of Toastmasters, we enjoyed a lot of reactions.
One came from Toulouse, France: Dominique Carrasco. He sent us this excellent tape in French language, introducing Toastmasters in general and his bi-lingual English-French club “Rosemasters” in particular.
Many Toastmasters are being confronted with this huge realignment into four Districts.
It’s not easy to plan new frontiers and please all Toastmasters. Some will be disappointed
as a neighbouring club will not be in the same District anymore. Or countries like Holland
and Belgium – while sharing the same language, – can kiss each other goodbye. One of them
will join Germany, the other France . . . (I heard)
Well, we’ll have to get used to the fact that some clubs will be separated by necessary
bureaucracy but should be happy in the knowledge that we still can enjoy exactly the same
contacts across Districts as we have always done.
Enjoy the Spring without wasting time!
