Author, Rae Stonehouse 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.
A Toastmasters Club’s membership can quickly change from a healthy charter-strength club to one in danger of losing its Charter.
Rae Stonehouse has witnessed the cycle several times with his own club, Kelowna Flying Solo Toastmasters.
Toastmasters are known to be quite social, after-all they are striving to hone their communication skills. Then along comes social media and on-line tools that can increase not only their reach but their productivity.
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.
