Sydney Boyd, Toastmasters Club #422

Sydney is currently President of the Capitol Club (#422) of Toastmasters International; they are (like us) an evening club.  She will present an overview of Toastmasters.  Sydney's biography:

I enjoy public speaking and storytelling.  Toastmasters has allowed me to practice and develop my public speaking skills as well as grow as a leader.

I have had a 30-year career in healthcare in Western Washington.  I began Toastmasters in 2011 in a corporate club sponsored by Virginia Mason Medical Center as part of their employee leadership improvement initiative. In 2017 I moved to Olympia and soon joined Capital Club 422.  I have completed two Toastmaster education tracks, the Competent Communicator and Competent Leader and I am currently working on the Effective Coaching track.  I have participated in several of Toastmasters International Speech contests both facilitating and as a contestant, winning at the club level twice.  I have also held several club offices and I am currently the president for Capital Club 422.
