VPE Corner written in chalk on a chalkboard

Greetings, fellow Toastmasters!   Have you chosen your Path, yet?  I highly recommend that you do some research first.  Toastmasters provides an assessment; I think it almost always recommends Innovative Planning, which is the most common path.  I recently saw this great video that explains the concepts and the level of “Leadership” included in each path.  Please check out this “Tuesday Talks-N-Tips” video:

Having now completed a Distinguished Toastmaster award (DTM) within the Traditional Program and two of the paths required towards a Pathways DTM, I’ll say I really have enjoyed Pathways, and I’ve learned a lot.  I am sure you will, too!  The Learning Management System (a.k.a. Basecamp) can be a little tricky to maneuver, but once you’ve gotten that, it’s smooth sailing!

I am planning to present a series of speeches over the next few months regarding “getting started” in Toastmasters and Pathways specifically.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
