Raise The Bar: Discover your inner speaker at 4th Dimension Toastmasters

Raising the bar at 4th Dimension Toastmasters

Letter from the 2016/2017 president for 4th Dimension Toastmasters Bryanston: Audrey Mphela

Do you want to be inspired? Do you want to be motivated? Do you want to be encouraged?

If you have answered ‘yes’, to any of these questions, you are right on track. The next step I would recommend, would be to join us for a meeting at 4th Dimension Toastmasters.  You are sure to experience an evening out of the ordinary. Many of our members and guests are filled with awe and amazement after every meeting, which does not amaze us at all. Whether you aspire to become competent and confident in your speaking or leading, we are here to support you in achieving your goals. We provide a supportive and positive learning experience for all. Nelson Mandela once said, education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

4th Dimension Toastmasters is a prestigious club, a club that has achieved 10 out of 10 Distinguished Club points for 10 years in a row. We purpose to continue this legacy of success for the club and to continue to be an example in District74 and the world at large. I salute all the past presidents of the club and the members for their great leadership as this could not have happened without their commitment and dedication to the bigger picture.

As the current president of the club, I take my role seriously. It is a privilege to serve my club in this capacity. I therefore put my whole heart and soul, energy and passion into every meeting. I seek to add value, be an asset, and continue the legacy of success for the club. It is a truly humbling experience, and I am filled with immeasurable gratitude. I must say, I am very excited.

Raising the bar

Our mandate to ‘Raise The Bar’  given by Mandy Hoffeldt, our immediate past president is our cherished goal. With that, our theme for the year is ‘Promise keepers’. We endeavour to keep our Toastmasters promises in order meet our goals and beyond. Over and above achieving our President Distinguished Points, and ensuring that all members are meeting their personal goals and more, we endeavour to up and improve our standard of speaking, leading and evaluating.  Toastmasters promises include (however not limited to) to treating our fellow club members and our guests with respect and courtesy, to maintain honest and highly ethical standards during the conduct of all Toastmaster’s activities.raise the bar: Discover your inner speaker at 4th Dimension Toastmasters

Joining Toastmasters and participating in the club has been one of my most valuable investments. It has contributed positively and tremendously to my personal growth and goals and especially in my professional and business undertakings. I personally, strongly believe in the Toastmasters promises. They have been to me a great character building force and a guide in the story of my life.  If someone like me, previously known for being as shy as a tortoise can speak in front of an audience, YOU TOO CAN.

I used to think….Why am I afraid to speak? I speak to myself all the time. What could possibly go wrong? And I would convince myself – Audrey you’ll be fine, besides an ambulance is only a phone call away. After all that convincing, I finally delivered my “first speech”, my CC1.

I accepted that sooner or later I would need to go out there and boldly face my fears, you can too. I encourage you to try it, if you have not already.

Join us on the journey

Walk this journey with us as we seize this once in a lifetime opportunity to shape the future, grow in personal ways and most importantly to help others grow. Unleash our inner confident speaker. This is by no means an easy task we must achieve, but if we can pull together, I strongly believe we can make a real difference. Join me in this vision.invited to 4th dimension toastmasters
