The well-balanced, intelligent speaker is the natural leader in any group of which he is a part.
— Ralph Smedley, 1876 – 1965, Founder, Toastmasters International
Here are four images — four graphic agendas — from the Leadership Development Series of workshops hosted by District 27’s leadership team. The vision for this educational series came from Distinguished Toastmaster and District Governor, Dianne LaVanway. Dianne then assembled a team of volunteers who handled everything from advertising, to managing an on-line registration system, to supplying food & drink, to facilities clean up.
Dr. Ralph Smedley also said that “we learn best during moments of enjoyment.” From the peek I had at the workshop evaluations it seems that a good time was had by all who attended these educational sessions. A few folks even commented that these at-a-glance agendas helped meter the progress and contributed to the interactive, blended-learning approach used by all four instructional teams.
