Lark Doley DTM – International President

A Toastmaster for 25 years, Doley is a member of two clubs, including her home club in Pflugerville, Texas, the Arthur Storer club that was chartered in honour of her father-in-law after his death in 1997. Doley has held a number of high-profile leadership positions within Toastmasters and has attained the Distinguished Toastmaster designation—the highest level of achievement in the organization.

Doley says, “I have used my improved communication and leadership skills to found and lead a successful company. I now have the privilege to work for a company where I use my skills daily to teach others.” Surely well qualified to take us through our potential from our New beginning.

Lark will also run a workshop for all of us. Lark’s full Bio is available on-line at https://www.toastmasters.org/about/board-of-directors/current-board-of-directors

Toni Sharpe QSM, DTM – District 112 Director

Toni will take a Key Note speaking slot. It is the first year as a new District, and I know she has a great story to tell. Toni is steering the ship through the rippling waters of our first year as a new District, I’m sure there are anecdotes to describe our New Beginnings Toni can share with us.

Further speakers will be profiled in future newsletters as they are confirmed to take either a workshop or to speak.
