Following the officer elections on Tuesday 19th May; I’m delighted to announce the new committee that will be supporting the City of London Toastmasters (CoLT) club effective from 1st July 2015; helping all our guests and members to make the most of their public speaking journey.
It’s a farewell – to the current committee!! But a new set of fresh faces to keep the CoLT the best club in London! A note of thanks to David Charles, Isaya Taingwa, Mahir Hamurcu, Monika Bochra and Tom Hunt that held key roles in the 2014/15 committee and will now be involved in other opportunities.
|Paul Rocks||Club President
I have been a member of City Speakers for several years now. I’ve completed the competent communicator, competent leader and the advanced communicator Bronze aware. I now want to use the skills I’ve learned here want to help other people the same way toastmasters has helped me over the years.
|Rachel De CesaroLeigh Clark
||Vice President of Education
Challenge motivates me and I’m thankful to Toastmaster for providing me that, either by delivering speeches, by taking a role or as a committee member. As VPE shared role, I hope to get members involved and excited about completing their CC manuals! I’m counting on you for that!
I’ve been a member of City of London Toastmasters for over a year and is close to completing my Competent Communicator award. I’m keen to help ensure CoLT remains a popular club and to encourage all its members to make the most of development opportunities that exist both within the club and in the wider Toastmasters organisation.
|Leanne Wenham||Vice President of Membership
I joined Toastmasters over two years ago and it has made such a difference to my public speaking skills; I can’t recommend it highly enough. When I’m not at the computer working on my next speech you might find me exploring one of London’s many eateries or running in my local park.
|Dimos Mouskovias||Vice President Mentoring
I have been a member of City Of London Speakers for a number of years now and can honestly say that the benefits gained have improved my life both professionally and socially.
By day I work as an IT specialist for a City Law firm and by night I enjoy ‘treading the boards’ of a local Amateur Dramataics Society I belong to, which I should add would not be possible had Toastmasters not provided me the confidence and skills to present myself on stage.
|Christine Harris||Club Treasurer
I have been a member of City of London Toastmasters for more than 4 years and have benefitted enormously from Toastmasters. I have gone from avoiding speaking in public at all costs, to putting myself forward to give presentations, speaking at conferences and applying for a job I never thought I’d get. Who knows what Toastmasters will help me to do next!
|Tom O’Toole||Sergeant at Arms
I am a projects manager for a construction company. I enjoy all things construction and I am passionate about food, health, fitness and yoga outside of work. I love toastmasters and I am excited to be part of the committee for the coming year!
|Ga Lok Chung||Immediate Past President
It’s been an immense pleasure being President this year, getting to all the members not only in my own club, but also building relationships with clubs across London.
It will be another exciting year ahead of workshops, dinners and of course speeches. Signing off;
