Stand up, speak up, sit down

What you give is what you get”

What I like about Cornerstone Communicators Advanced Toastmasters

The commitment of members to each other. The variety of meetings.

What I do for work

I am happily retired. When not in lockdown I enjoy helping in the community.

My Toastmaster clubs and offices held

I joined Bedford Speakers in 2009, have been a member of Cornerstone from the first meeting and recently joined Online Orators. Since clubs have needed to move to zoom I have become a regular visitor to other clubs. I have been club President at Bedford and spent several years as VPE.

Areas of expertise

l love storytelling, thinking outside the box, for example in Table Topics, and encouraging others.
