Fellow Toastmasters —
It’s a great honor to be representing you at the Toastmasters International Convention, and the District Officers’ Training. I’ve spent my time getting to know fellow members from around the world — and I even got to eat with the Past International Presidents!
It was a great feeling to meet with the World Champion of 2023 public speaking — but I became emotional when I watched the third ranked speaker. Most of the leaders were encouraging me to work with you and make our district distinguished during this Toastmasters year of 2023-2024.
I interacted with Club Growth Directors of other Districts from across the world. I also discussed about club building with past international directors. I have returned with lot of energy and confidence to apply my knowledge and experience to work with the team and retain the clubs.
I have so much to tell you, but in the meantime here’s a set of photographs that documented my experiences.
Mohan Padamati, DTM
Club Growth Director 2023-2024
