Toasting to Pathways
TOASTMASTERS International will change its path almost a century after it started to meet modern challenges.
Toastmasters Currambine public relations vice-president Sam Walsham said the international organisation had been helping people improve their confidence and leadership through public speaking since 1924.
“Toastmasters is undergoing massive change to ensure the organisation remains exceptionally relevant to the challenges of modern personal and professional life,” he said.
“Known as ‘Pathways’, this new program is the most radical change to Toastmasters since its inception.
“Pathways allows members to customise their Toastmasters goals to suit their personal and professional ambitions.”
Mr Walsham said on November 15, Pathways ambassador Samith Pich presented the program to the Currambine club, and members could start using it from December 6.
“Pathways takes advantage of modern technology enabling members to track their progress and access resources at any time on their smart phones, tablets or computers,” he said.
The club meets on the first and third Wednesday of each month at Currambine Community Centre. Visit currambine.toastmastersclubs.org.
