From way back in the mid 1920s, Toastmasters International knew that success happens on our feet.
Since then, its mission has been to give access to Everyman and Everywoman the skills of public speaking. Currently it operates in 122 nations, with a membership of 292,000. Most metro areas, including here in Tucson, Arizona, have a weekly meeting. There you, yes, are forced up on your feet. The group provides feedback. A nice side effect is networking.
This year Toastmasters has chosen Rohana Rozhan for its annual Golden Gavel Award. Previous winners have ranged from Walter Cronkite to Deepak Chopra.
Chief Executive Officer of Astro Malalysia Holdings Berhad, Rozhan led her team to become Asia's top pay television operator. The award will be presented during the Toastmasters International Convention in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, August 20 through 23.
Rozhan's other honors include the 2013 CNBC Corporate Social Responsibility Award and the 2013 Silver Stevie Award for her leadership in educational, environmental and social issues.
