Toastmasters of North Vancouver

Date
: Saturday, September 19, 2020 (3rd Saturday)

Time:  Gather 10:00 am. Meeting 10:15 am - 12:15 pm

Register:  Please register in advance on the EventBrite page to receive the meeting information and Zoom link:  
EventBrite Link: https://allworkshophpl.eventbrite.ca

Program Agenda includes speeches scheduled by Jim Mann and Gordon Walter plus a Feature Workshop hosted by Maureen McBeath DTM, who will moderate a panel discussion on how to complete a successful High-Performance Leadership ( HPL) project via Zoom conferencing.

The HPL, or High Performance Leadership project, has been a high bar to reach for in Toastmasters on the path to completing a DTM award for many years and has been both an exciting challenge to reach for and an intimidating standard to uphold. Now our socially distanced environment adds another level of hesitation to taking that next step in our leadership journey. 

Maureen McBeath, DTM will facilitate a panel discussion: How to Complete HPL Online on Zoom. Everyone can gain some insight, whether you have completed an HPL previously using in-person meetings or are looking at a required project in your Pathways education path with trepidation and are looking for guidance while formulating your plan to get started. This workshop is not to be missed.

If you are completing your traditional education program, or working on your Pathways Level 3 or 4, and thinking about your HPL project, this workshop is for you.

Please make sure that you do go to the Eventbrite page for this month's meeting to confirm that you will be attending the meeting and to get the Zoom link to access the meeting space.  Eventbrite Link: https://allworkshophpl.eventbrite.ca

We look forward to seeing you all there.
