Brent Smith, DTM
About Me: I began Toastmasters in 2002. Initially, I wanted to improve my presentation style in Spanish, and helped organize Oregon's first Bilingual Spanish-English Club. Since then, I have grown more comfortable in leadership, presentation, and personal communication! As a visitor to other clubs and a participant in several speech competitions, I was able gain confidence in speaking in front of various unfamiliar groups, develop an idea for a diverse audience, and gain a great network of friends around Oregon and the globe! As Area 41 Governor in 2013-2014 (Called area director now), I gained leadership experience and relationships that will last a life-time!! Toastmasters boosted me in my profession as a Chiropractor, business owner, church leader as well as my family life! I stay in Toastmasters to keep my communication skills sharp and to continue to broaden my network and skills. I completed my first pathway, Effective Coaching in April 2022. I am very glad I stayed in Toastmasters as learning to use Zoom and online meetings with Covid has been a great benefit to me. I also love running, hiking, and fishing with family. I look forward to continuing my quest to grow and help you achieve excellencee through Toasting Excellence. I have been blessed with an opportunity to help coach a struggling club and help build Dallas Toastmasters. I am also taking the opportunity to lead as an Area Director again and help other clubs build their programs. This has provided valuable connections and networking. I was able to give my first paid speech to Willamette Writers and donate the funds back to the organization for membership scholarships.
I think you will find Toastmasters quite beneficial! Come check us out!! Brent.
