FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Why do you want to serve as International Director from Region III?

Pamela McCown is dedicated to serving this organization in reaching the Big Audacious Goal of becoming recognized throughout the world as the undisputed expert in communication and leadership skills development.

Unlike so many people that joined Toastmasters to conquer their fear of public speaking, I joined Toastmasters for the opportunities to hone my leadership skills.

My initial goal was to become a manager of a corporate training division. I submitted an application and was accepted as a protégé in a Diversity Mentoring Program at JPMorgan Chase Bank. This group chartered a Toastmasters club to work on communication and leadership objectives during the program. The next year, I was invited to serve as a mentor in the JPMC Diversity Mentoring Program. By the time I was elected as District Governor, three years after becoming a Toastmaster, I had discovered my passion for mentoring others to grow leaders for our district. I retired from my 30 year banking career and became a full time volunteer dedicated to helping others discover their potential.
