One of the biggest challenges in a club is retaining members. New members join and are dropped into a wilderness of information! The end result? They get overwhelmed.

Joel Dawson joined toastmasters in July of 2013. He attended every meeting, but never gave a speech. He was asked to compete in the table topic contest at the fall conference. Feeling coerced in to competing he decided that toastmasters just wasn’t for him. He decided that after the conference he was going to quit. At the conference, something magical happened. Joel went back to his club with renewed vigor and decided that he wanted to become a professional speaker and that he did. Joel achieved his DTM designation in 18 months but he didn’t stop there. His ultimate goal was to be one of the best speakers in the world! Last year Joel accomplished that by placing 2nd in the semifinals of the 2016 World Championship of Public speaking.
