Unpacking more than luggage ... from chicago ignite

Ignite Chicago selected me to speak at their 2019 "Best Of" event in November, 2019, on the one year anniversary of us moving to Fort Wayne. So, I talked about moving ... the value of living like a tourist, the value of living like a local, and most importantly, that no move is complete until you unpack both your luggage, and your baggage. 20 slides, 15 seconds a slide, no second chances.

To change a culture, change three things

On my second trip to speak at IgniteChicago, I spoke about the value of culture, and the three aspects you have to change in order to change anything ... the stories you tell, the artifacts you show, and the rituals you hold. Without changing these three things, you'll never step away from what is comfortable, to what is necessary.

A Vision for a Community of Toastmasters in Fort Wayne

Before anyone can lead, they must first develop a vision of where they are headed. I believe Toastmasters is at its best when it is a community, not segmented into individual clubs. I believe Toastmasters epitomizes the axiom, "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." How far do you want to go?

Moments of Real Truth

When was the last time you looked at your group with "new eyes"? When was the last time you pushed your team to gt comfortable with the uncomfortable? When was the last time you embedded "WOW" moments into your meetings?  After moving to Fort Wayne, Scott was asked to speak at Toastmasters Leadership Institute to challenge club officers to answer these very questions.

A Shared Commencement

I have three wishes for my beloved Articulators as I venture out on my next adventure ... continue to tell the stories that lift one other up, continue to gather the artifacts that bond you together as a club, and continue to invest in helping others unlock a potential they did not know they possessed. "

There may be miles between our smiles, but let there never be distance between our hearts."
