how a simple project like this grows legs!
the boot camp last year (2102) to take advantage of a meeting room
package I had purchased at an MPI auction. I asked my friend and
fellow Accredited Speaker, Sheryl Roush, DTM, A/S if she would come
in a day early to help me conduct it. She was coming in to speak
at our CAPS
Edmonton Chapter and graciously said yes. We had such a great
time with the 30 plus people who came to learn and spend the day
with us. I engaged 3 of our local speakers to come and be a part
of our faculty for the day. It was a hit.
were going to Australia last April (2012). I touched base with the
District Governor of the newly formed District 17 in Perth,
Western Australia. Long story, short, he agreed to have
me do an afternoon version of my Boot Camp where in excess of 70
plus eager Toastmasters came to learn and to grow. What a responsive
audience. He was thrilled, and so was I!
year (2013) I again had purchased a meeting room package at an MPI
auction and decided to do another one here in Edmonton. I engaged
3 amazing speakers to help me, including my wife (web diva) who
did a program on making Powerpoint Powerful. This year with a twist.
Part of the proceeds will be set aside to help me self-fund an idea
I have in support of the CAPS Foundation when we host the Global
Speakers Summit in Vancouver Dec. 8-10, 2013.
to add Boot Camps where I could in locations where I was traveling
to speak this year. The Grande Prairieand Halifax
Boot Camps were added to the schedule. We are doing a 2nd special
one in Edmonton in part to support KIVA, a micro-financing project
my friend Dianna Bowes supports. My hope is they will be well attended
and allow me to create the project I have in mind for launch in
Vancouver. We will be doing a second one in Edmonton on June 1st
in support of Kiva, a micro-lending project.
in Edmonton we are looking at creating a Speaking for Success community
and exploring ideas such as having working lunches where we can
come to present and get coaching or lunch and learns where we can
give our TedX styled speakers a full hour to explore and expand
on their topics.
will be creating an Alumni ONLY resource section
in addition to our public resources page on this website. This will
allow us to continue to expand on what we are doing and to continue
helping our Alumni grow and hone their skills.
be creating a gallery page to share some of the pictures of our
amazing students and boot campers.
I would suggest you bookmark this page and come back from time to
time. We'll keep adding value for you!
a more powerful speaker is within your grasp.
Whether you use the services of a professional coach, join Toastmasters,
