Help Toastmasters recognize members’ achievements
The Roller Toasters Toastmasters Club invites all employees to join them in celebrating their members’ accomplishments at a recognition program set for noon to 1 p.m., Friday, Feb. 15 in the City Hall Rotunda.
As part of the event, Hennepin County Referee Mark Labine will present the keynote address speaking from the humorous speaking manual. Labine’s speech will bring him one step closer to achieving the Distinguished Toastmaster award, the highest achievement that Toastmasters bestows on its members. The award recognizes both communication and leadership skills. Labine will also receive the Advanced Communicator Gold award at the event.
The event will also honor other Roller Toaster members who have reached Toastmaster milestones:
- Toni Newborn, Civil Rights, the club's vice president of public relations, will be recognized for achieving the Toastmaster Competent Communication Award.
- Michael K. Browne, Civil Rights, the club's vice president of education, will receive the Advanced Communicator Bronze Award and Advanced Leader Bronze Award.
- Lyle Henning, Clifton Larson Allen LLP, will receive the Advanced Leadership award.
All employees are welcome at attend. Light refreshments will be provided.
Twenty-five people participate in the Rollertoasters Toastmaster club, which meets each Friday from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. in City Hall. Toastmasters is a learn-by-doing program, where participants practice meeting and speaking skills. The goal is to provide a supportive and positive learning environment so that every member has the opportunity to develop communication and leadership skills.
