Toastmasters Leadership Institute is truly a highlight and an amazing kick-off for the year. It is filled with opportunities for networking, training and very exciting educational sessions. Not to mention there are refreshments provided throughout the day and a chance to choose which sessions you would like to attend.
At the start of the day, The Career Builders Club was recognized at the TLI conference. Our President Jana received the award and we have a new sash for having “100% Club Officers trained for the 2019 – 2020 term - District 5 “Be Brilliant” The TLI training is a wonderful time for members from different clubs to meet, get to know each other and shares ideas.
Some of the big highlights from the day are getting to listen to and be inspired by the Toastmasters Accredited speakers. And this year was no exception. Paul Artale was the Keynote Speaker – He provided an incredible start to the day with his message entitled Hit Hard: 3 Must-Have Mindsets to Breakthrough Challenges. Paul provided insight and humor as he described his journey in achieving his dream of playing college football for the University of Toronto. His message encouraged that; leveraging our strengths and identifying opportunities are just two of the amazing mindsets for achieving the Goals that you have set for yourself.
Chris Nielson is a fellow Toastmaster and Improv Guru. A definite standout session that was not to be missed. His mission is to send positive ripples into the world with fun, actionable, transformations ideas, strategies, and skills. It was amazing to see how learning some of the improv games and techniques can assist in day to day life as well as toastmasters. Our club loves to incorporate improve whenever possible and we usually incorporate it at a few events during the year.
