Division L Governor Pawas,
My dear Area governors, Club officers, Members and Guests
Welcome to Rhetoric 2012.
I would like to recognize the presence of my team members.
- Area Governors
- Club officers
- Past officers at the Division, Area & Club level
- Leaders without title (YLP, demo meetings, promotion of toastmasters, launching membership drives, helping clubs)
I take this opportunity to thank all of you for contributing to the success of Division G. Special thanks to my mentor DTM Lalitha Giridhar. I'm what I'm today, because of her.
"Small things make perfection, but perfection isn't a small thing".
- Today, you are going to witness the performance of some of the BEST speakers in Tamilnadu who paid attention to those small details - that made them the STARS of Division G.
- Today, you are going to witness the leaders in action, the leaders who skillfully crafted Rhetoric 2012
A leader isn't the one who delegates tasks to everyone and get the tasks done with a WHIP in hand. A leader is someone who leads from the front and supports from the back. The Chief Pilot of Rhetoric 2012 TM Dhanaraj is a true example of this. TM Dhanaraj and his team of volunteers did an outstanding job to make every aspect of TODAY's conference special.
Rhetoric 2012 is special for many reasons:
- YOU! Got up so early on a Sunday morning, and came here
- For the first time ever, the top 3 district officials are attending the conference together in Division G
- This is THE last conference of the combined Division G which includes all the clubs in Tamilnadu
- Last but not the least, Rhetoric 2012 celebrates the success of Division G
Division G is the first division to become President Distinguished in District 82. Division G is the first division to achieve all its district goals.
Being #1 is special... Being #1 in the #1 district is even more special.
Toastmasters, Division G is a huge castle, built with stones, marbles and diamonds taken from various parts of Tamilnadu. Division G is standing TALL and STRONG because of YOU. Every small success of yours is translating into a HUGE victory for Division G. Thanks for making Division G #1.
This is THE last conference of the combined Division G. My term as a Division Governor will be over in 2 months. But remember...
Men may come and men may go ! But toastmasters movement in Tamilnadu will continue to flourish forever.
