Did everyone see the commercial for Hilton Garden Inns that mentions Toastmasters?
If not, here is a link to a copy of it on YouTube.com!
On a related(?) note... and if you have not heard about it already, District 53 is working on a Word-of-mouth Marketing campaign to get the word out about Toastmasters to all Human Resources Professionals.
We will be sending out an email on April 8th to as many members in our district as possible and will be asking each of us to forward it along to any Human Resource Professional that we know in time for "HR Day" on April 9th. (District 53 Toastmasters is declaring this date in honor of Human Resources Professionals and the work they do to develop people within their companies.)
There will also be a press release going out to major media outlets (as identified by your Area Governors) prior to the email, but the real key to the campaign will be the personally forwarded emails. We are hoping to leverage the Toastmasters "word-of-mouth" network within District 53 to increase awareness within all types and sizes of companies!
Special thanks for this effort goes out to our new PRO, Angela Lussier; our LGM, Marsha Kiley; our District Governor, Will Ryan; our new webmaster, Geoff Thomas, and all of the Area and Division Governors who helped.
If there are any questions or suggestions, please let me know or give me a call. We are still working on a number of components (press release, web page, etc.) so if you would like to help, please send me an email separately.
Daring to Believe ... that more people will know about Toastmasters!
