Immediate Past President

Louis Brown (DTM)

About Me: I have been in Toastmasters since February 2007. I am a past member of Sensor Toast Club, NCCI Toastmasters and Palm Beach Advanced Toastmasters.

Over the years I’ve held several district and club leadership roles: Lt. Governor Marketing, Division Governor, Area Governor, Club President, Club Vice President Education, Club Secretary, Sergeant at Arms and Club Webmaster.

I received the Division Governor of the Year Award in 2013 and the Division D Outstanding Toastmaster Award in 2012. I have chaired (or assisted with) numerous events including conferences, contests, workshops, club social events, and Toastmasters Leadership Institutes. I have also presented in several of these settings.

In my spare time I enjoy tai chi, origami, reading (especially personal development books), online courses (I never stop learning!), fitness, travel, and site seeing.

I moved from Jupiter, FL (District 47) to Chicago, IL in June 2015 where I remained a “virtual” member of Sensor Toast until joining Online Presenters as a charter member. I am very excited to be part of this trendsetting club – one which was very well positioned when online became the “normal” – as it allows me to perfect my online presentation and speaking skills.

Jim Barber, the man and the legend

Jim Barber (PM1)

About Me: I’m Jim Barber and I’ve been an active member of Toastmasters International for over 30 years, and of Online Presenters since the beginning of 2018. I’ve also been president — twice — of the Florida Speakers Association, a chapter of the National Speakers Association. I gave a TED Talk at the 2016 West Broward High TEDx, and I gave an educational program at the D47 2018 Spring Conference, comparing TED Talks and Toastmasters speeches. I’m also the author of 18 training manuals (don’t bother searching — they’re all out of print), and I’m hoping to write my first novel in 2022. I live in the western suburbs of Fort Lauderdale (Florida, USA) where I’m patiently (and largely unsuccessfully) learning to play the didgeridoo.
