Lesley Storkey DTM
Lesley joined Toastmasters in the Whitsundays in August 1990 purely for “something to do, together”. Lesley’s first leadership experience was as Secretary (in the days when we had “snail” mail) and that role gave her a deep insight into the machinations of a club and district and also an appreciation of the “big picture”.
In 2006-7 Lesley was elected as the (then) Lieutenant-Governor Marketing and went on to serve District 69 as District Governor in 2008- 9. A particular challenge in 2019-20 was to serve as the Chair of the Online Training Committee, initiating a pilot study using Zoom as the platform, little knowing how essential those skills would be in these last 12 months.
In August 2020 she was elected as the International Director from Region 12 (8 districts covering Australia, New Zealand, Brunei, Indonesia and east Malaysia). As a member of the Toastmasters International Board, she hopes to foster connections at all levels.
Lesley has a passion for mentoring current and future leaders in developing their skills and firmly believes “knowledge is only useful if you can pass it on”.
Lesley Storkey will be giving a keynote address at the Celebrating Change Conference.
