First Chairman for Toastmasters China

Warwick and Toastmasters in China

On 17 August 2007, Warwick received a Presidential Citation at the Hall of Fame from Toastmasters International. His citation read: “A far-sighted visionary and efficient organiser, Warwick led his team of able and dedicated Toastmasters to expand the number of clubs in China from fewer than ten to more than forty in under three years. In the process, Warwick trained new Toastmasters in the ways of organisational leadership while leading the clubs in China to becoming a territorial council and then a provisional district in less than two years.”

I have been involved with Toastmasters in China since 2002, and helped support the rapid growth of the community as Chairman of Toastmasters International in China.  After a successful and sustainable transition to local leadership, I am now asked to take the role as mentor and knowledge sharer.  Toastmasters has opened many doors for me – which I walked through – and now I am focused on giving back to this community of wonderful sharing people.
