Are you looking for Table Topic Questions. I’m afraid the ones below are unexpected and might not work for a club meeting. Yet… they are worth your time:

*If you’d like to provide your answer to our questions, please use comment section below

Question # 1

Do you know who was the first employee of Toastmasters International World Headquarters (TIWHQ) to receive DTM award?

Question #2

Do you know who was a Chartering President of the TIWHQ club “I’m Just Sayin’”?

Question #3

Is the person from question #1 and #2 still works at TIWHQ?

Question #4

Only two people held Application Services Manager position at TWHQ. One was a man (Nader), another was a woman (Sonya).
Did a man and a woman at Toastmasters Intentional who held Application Services Manager position made the same amount of money doing the same job with the same title?  

Question #5

How much would you pay for a collectible book by Ralph Smedley “Personally Speaking” that was generously given for free to one of Toastmasters employees as part of Toastmasters office relocated to CO?

Question #6

Can you sue your ex-employer for Emotional Distress?


#1 – Bill Nissim, DTM

#2 – Bill Nissim, DTM

#3 – No – for more information about first TI DTM being let go from TI please read my post on LinkedIn

#4 – No

#5 – $115 (I wish I’d gotten more books! I love that book! )

#6 – Yes and No. Yes, If your distress is caused by the negligent or intentional acts of someone else, you may be able to file a personal injury claim to recover compensation for your damages. But… It’s a very complex personal dilemma, when you know that people donate money to your ex-employer because they got so much from being Toastmasters, and because their lives were forever changed for the better!


If you use VS 2019  version 16.8 or higher, the process has changed. Please see MS Announcement on Git Experience in VS.
