Once upon a time it was safe to go to work. Maybe that was just a fairy tale because the times have certainly changed. Increased violence has become part of our everyday life be it at home or at work. We read about it daily in the newspaper and are bombarded with violent stories from the television and radio.
PROtect Yourself! provides an integrative, non violent approach to dealing with physical aggression and verbal threat. Its method of information delivery is designed to help you develop greater awareness and vigilance, hone observational and judgment skills and to learn communication techniques to defuse potentially volatile situations.

In this practical, easy to use e-book, Rae A. Stonehouse a.k.a. Mr. Emcee, puts the “Master” in Master of Ceremonies. He shares tips & techniques that he has learned over the years in becoming a dynamic Master of Ceremonies.
Officiating as a Master of Ceremonies at an event is a lot like looking at an iceberg floating in the water. The public only sees what is happening at the event … the tip of the iceberg. They don’t see what has happened behind the scenes or under the water, so to speak, to make everything look like it is running smoothly.
As in his other publications he uses the “onion” approach of content exploration where he systematically peals back layer after layer. He takes his readers on a journey of discovery to the behind the scenes world of event organizing and the how-to of being an effective, dynamic Master of Ceremonies.
This step-by-step e-book is a primer for wannabe Master of Ceremonies or those that have just accepted the role of Emcee and are asking themselves “What have I got myself into? How do I even start?”
Experienced Emcees can benefit by gaining a different perspective on how they perform the role and add new skills to their repertoire.

For many Toastmasters Clubs, one of the biggest challenges in running a successful and productive club is maintaining a constant flow of visitors to attend and join you and your fellow Toastmasters as a member. Members come and members go. Life happens! Your Club membership can quickly change from a healthy charter-strength club to one in danger of losing its Charter.
Veteran Toastmaster of over two decades, Rae Stonehouse DTM (Distinguished Toastmaster), PDG (Past District Governor, District 21)has witnessed the cycle several times with his own club Kelowna Flying Solo Toastmasters.
Toastmasters are social!
Toastmasters are known to be quite social, after-all we are striving to hone our communication skills. Then along comes social media and on-line tools that can increase not only our reach but our productivity.
Social media is here to stay!
Social media is here to stay, at least until the next “big thing” comes along. Keeping up with what’s new, what’s hot and what’s not could easily turn into a full-time job. And indeed it has for many people as they have created a new career as Social Media Managers.
The Power of Promotion! On-line Marketing For Toastmasters Club Growth by Rae Stonehouse flattens the learning curve for anyone who wants to maximize their time spent on-line, without turning it into a full-time job.
Rae believes that Toastmasters clubs should be run like businesses and social media platforms provide promotional and marketing opportunities that can help spread the word about one of the world’s best kept secrets... Toastmasters.
In this easy-to-read, how-to manual, Rae shares his experience with using social media to draw attention to his Toastmasters club and to convert visitors to social media properties to actually visit his club and to join. Sometimes it has worked … sometimes not!
