Division A started the Accelerator of The Month initiative in August 2020, which is aimed at encouraging Division A members to accelerate their Pathway learning experience. In recognising and incentivising their efforts, we are dedicating each month to celebrate each member’s achievements. We celebrate any member who attains the most Pathways educational awards in a month and/or is recognised for excellence by District 74 or Toastmasters International by; placing their photo on the cover page at all official Division social media accounts, including full names, recognised achievement and home club name; giving them a LinkedIn endorsement of communication and leadership related skills via the official Division account; giving them a LinkedIn recommendation of Toastmasters
International membership via the official Division account; and sending
mailer notification to all Division A members.
The first recipient of the award was DTM Andrew Tsuro from Pretoria Public Speakers for winning two prestigious awards at the 2020 District 74 online Hall of Fame award ceremony namely; the District 74 Toastmaster of the Year and The Head Hunter awards. Our Area A1 Director, Dr Talent Muzambi was the second recipient after completing Pathways levels 1, 2 and 3 in Dynamic Leadership in one month (August 2020). Our recent Accelerator of The Month awardee is Nelson Makapane from Sanlam Speaks. Nelson completed Pathways levels 3, 4 and 5 in Effective Coaching in one month, September 2020. He was also the finalist for the August 2020 award. His accelerated effort and commitment to self-development and growth is inspiring to us Division A members.
We are looking forward to celebrating more Division A members in the months ahead.
