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.
