The Phoenix Project

Francesca Gammicchia,
Project Lead

Caught in Toastmasters 5 years ago, Francesca joined it for one reason and she stays for thousands of others. Probably she will never quit it, because she find in this method and community everything she needs to challenge everyday herself to become a better person and leader. VPE, VPM, President, Club Sponsor, Division Director, easySpeak Support, Educational Chair, Simple Member Mentor and Club Officer Mentor.

The Phoenix Project is for her:
– fun because she loves to create complex strategies
– training in team building and delegation
– thanksgiving because Toastmasters gave her a lot and so she can pay back a little

It is structured in 6 main phases;

  2. Creation of contents for manuals, welcome kit, video tutorials and social media
  3. Inform & recall clubs and on social media
  4. Support clubs, areas and divisions in welcoming past members willing to be reinstated
  5. Collect feedback from each level
  6. Create a documentation of the reinstate experience for further usage

To support this project we are looking for

  • One Leader of the Customer Center (HPL opportunity)
  • One Inform and Recall Leader (HPL opportunity)
  • One Ambassadors Leader (HPL opportunity)
