TOASTMASTERS is an international speaking club focused on nurturing leaders with progressive communication skills. Toastmasters International, with hundreds of thousands of members around the world, thousands of clubs around the world has one and only one BOOZ ALLEN HAMILTON TOASTMASTERS POTOMAC CLUB celebrating 10 years of sharing communication and leadership skills in a safe, supportive self progressive community of like minded people who do not talk with ummmms and ahhhhs heard on radio and tv by pundits.
Booz Allen Hamilton Toastmasters Potomac Club is devoted to legacy Ralph Smedley (February 22, 1878 – September 11, 1965). Dr. Smedley was born in Waverly, Illinois, died in Santa Ana, California.
Dr. Ralph C. Smedley, the then director of a YMCA, founded his speaking club in 1903 in Illinois, to help young men gain employment along with improving their interpersonal skills. Dr. Smedley opened clubs where he moved to, eventually ending up on the West Coast where Toastmasters took a foothold in to becoming the organization Toastmasters has grown in to today inclusive of women, for the first time, in 1975.
Toastmasters alumni include Warren Buffett, Canada’s Speaker Of The House, Mrs. Fields of Mrs. Fields Cookies and news pundit Chris Matthews.
Booz Allen Hamilton Toastmasters Potomac Club is old school Toastmasters where new and existing member TOASTMASTERS are supported in their self-progressive pursuit of Dr. Smedley’s Communication and Leadership tracks enroute to speaking so they will be heard or enroute to DTM, Distinguished Toastmaster if that becomes their pursuit.
POTOMAC IS THE LITTLE CLUB THAT IS & DOES
“THE MORE YOU PRACTICE RALPH SMEDLEY’S LEGACY, THE MORE RALPH’S COMMUNICATING & LEADERSHIP LESSONS BECOME PART OF YOUR MEMORY MUSCLE” -Carrie Devorah, Potomac Coach
