Dennis Popp, DTM, delivering an evaluation for Zach.
Yesterday was an exciting meeting with three speakers! Susan and Zach gave two outstanding speeches from the Competent Communication manual and Anh Chi gave a speech from the Special Occasions manual – Presenting the DTM Award Plaque to Dennis Popp.
Congratulations, Dennis! Nationwide, during our history, less than 1% of those who join Toastmasters earn the DTM. This isn’t because it’s particularly difficult; it isn’t. It does require planning, persistence and flexibility, though.
Zach had the edge on best speaker votes and Dennis for best evaluator. I was the vote counter and I can say that all received votes (the other two evaluators were Paul Brown and Kian Boloori).
