Presenting “Plot Your Path: A Map to DTM”
Since Alison Boyce joined Toastmasters over 25 years ago, she has seen the Toastmaster education program change three times–each time learning to adapt amidst ensuing confusion. Perhaps that’s why Alison’s Toastmaster passion is helping members achieve success in the program. While Alison has at some point during her Toastmasters career served at every leadership level, from club to Council, she is currently Area Director of two areas, and she was the District 58 Toastmaster of the Year for 2018-2019.
Alison’s upcoming presentation, “Plot Your Path: A Map to DTM” will be an interactive session designed to help Toastmasters navigate their journey to Distinguished Toastmaster. Whether, you are a new Toastmaster or a leader in your club, you’ll leave this 50-minute presentation with plenty of valuable and applicable information.
Presenting “Successful Thinking: It’s a Know-Brainer”
Dr. Heather Collins is a Cognitive Neuroscientist with expertise in how the brain learns, remembers, and thinks about information. She empowers business professionals through brain science by creating power thinkers and catapulting confidence. She has been an enthusiastic member of the MUSC Toastmasters Club since 2011.
In Heather’s 50-minute presentation, “Successful Thinking: It’s a Know-Brainer,” she will address questions like: Are you a successful thinker? Are you an expert learner? What could you accomplish if you knew how to quickly assess a situation, take in information, and act on that information in a meaningful way? Join Heather as she digs into the science of expert learning and successful thinking and reveals simple ways of applying these skills to your professional life.
Presenting “Sponsor, Mentor, or Coach; Targeting New or Existing Clubs”
Alan’s session will highlight the new roles of the Club Sponsor or Mentor and the existing Club Coach. Not designed to be an in-depth training, Alan’s presentation will provide an overview of these roles in order to help attendees discover which role or roles they would be best suited for you as a new or advanced Toastmaster.
Alan is a seasoned professional in the fields of Architecture, Construction, and Facilities Management. He is currently the owner of Mitchell Construction Systems where he is a management consultant.
As an active member of two Toastmaster clubs, Alan has served in nearly every officer position.
Previously, Alan has worked with District 58 Leaders to produce successful TLI’s, Speech Contests, and other professional development events. He has also served as a successful Club Coach, Area Director, Division Director, and is currently serving as District 58 Club Growth Director.
