Greetings fellow Toastmasters and honored guests,
I am honored and humbled to serve this year as the Toastmasters District 68 Director. If you are a non-Toastmaster and guest to this website, I encourage you to visit all the pages to and consider joining a club soon. For me, Toastmasters has been life changing. I joined the organization in April 2011 shortly after my 50th birthday. My intention at that time was simply to improve my public speaking skills. I had no idea how much that decision would help me grow. It worked out very well. Toastmasters not only helped me improve my speaking skills, but I also grew as a leader and my self-confidence increased tenfold.
To my fellow Toastmasters, if my mentor, John C. Maxwell, were to give you advice, he would say this: “Good leaders ask great questions.” Please ask great questions this year and throughout your Toastmasters journey so that you can get the most value from your experience as a member.
In service to the member,
Mohamad Qayoom, DTM
District 68 Director
