My First Blog Post for Toastmasters

I am scheduled to deliver a talk on Social Media for Toastmasters tomorrow, Sat Nov 13, 2015, at the District 57's Fall Conference. I thought this would be a good time to create my Toastmasters blog so that I can share my thoughts on how Toastmasters Clubs and members, can make best use of the social media.

In my talk I will touch upon use of:

  • Linkedin
  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • YouTube
  • Google+ / Google Blogs  and related topics.
After my talk, I will share here how to get a copy of my presentation. More to come!
