Note from the Editor

Exuberantly and with resilience, District 74 rose to the challenge to showcase the first ever online Hall of Fame Awards last weekend on Saturday 8 August 2020, sharing the excitement and experience of the live event without breaking any social distancing rules. Congratulations to all the winners!

 Sharlene Cassel, the Division D Director is this edition’s cover star. Though I have never met her in person, speaking with her about her leadership journey felt like chatting with a friend. She is funny and insightful and has thought deeply about the dynamic path her Division will chart this year.

Right up front, find out how the Southern Africa Public Speaking Champion clinched the coveted title. Also in regular pillars of this issue we will recount the various projects, events, victories and activities happening in District 74 including the CFR dashboard.

Each of these stories speaks to our faith in the Toastmasters brand and I am excited to share them with you. Please keep your eyes on this newsletter for the inspiring and motivating success leadership stories. 

Many thanks to you, District 74, for the feedback. Please keep the short and punchy 50-100 words articles and good quality pictures coming to;

Simple steps help to stop the Covid19 spread. Let’s practice them.
