Starting at July 2022 it will be my turn as area director D4
For the people who don’t know me already, I’m Kevin Frank, 31 years old, research Assistant at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg and I’m always looking for new challenges.
The way from a speaker to a competent speaker to a reflected speaker with social commitment was long for me. Delivering speeches or rather standing in front of other people was something I had to do since 2017. This was the moment I started as a student tutor. Furthermore, I started to attend rhetoric trainings on a regular basis. This was very helpful and gave me some confidence due to the theoretical aspects of a good speech. Nevertheless, Cicero sad it best, you only learn to perform a speech by giving speeches. Indeed, I was unhappy with my current progress and searched for something beyond the theoretical trainings. Due to some YouTube research and advice from Mentors I was introduced to Toastmasters in September 2020. Constant Feedback, the defined steps in Pathways and the preparation for the speech contests illustrated to me what was possible with regard to Presentation and developing the own style. Developing this in a safe environment is vital for me. For this possibility I’m very grateful and want to hand back Toastmasters something. Giving back in this sense means to me take responsibility and support clubs and the organization itself. At my club I’m the vice president of education and will support the Area D4 as an area director.
I invite you all to join me on this journey. You will get a closer look behind the scene, we will learn together what it means to be an area director and therefore maybe you will find the motivation to try it out for yourself.
