Louis Brown (DTM)
About Me: I have been in Toastmasters since February 2007 and I'm a current member of Sensor Toast Club and a past member of NCCI Toastmasters and Palm Beach Advanced Toastmasters. I served District 47 as a Lt. Governor Marketing, Division Governor, Area Governor, Club President, Club Vice President Education, Club Secretary, 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. I moved from Jupiter FL, and District 47, to Chicago, IL in June 2015 and remained a "virtual" member of Sensor Toast since then. I am very excited to be part of this new online club format which allows me to perfect my online presentation skills.
Jim Barber (ATMG, CL)
About Me: I'm Jim Barber and I've been an active member of Toastmasters International for almost 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 -- they're all out of print), and I've recently launched two podcasts, Speaker Gym (tips for strengthening your speaking skills) and Pro Speaker U (helping people move from free to fee). I also run a web-based marketing service, Finders Speakers, which provides cost-effective marketing opportunities to professional speakers and other entrepreneurs. I live in the western suburbs of Fort Lauderdale (Florida, USA) where I'm diligently (and largely unsuccessfully) learning to play the didgeridoo.
Clarissa Douthit (ACS, ALS, LDREXC)
About Me: I have been a Toastmaster since Oct 2001 to overcome my fear of public speaking. I shuttered at the thought of speaking in front of more than two people (REALLY!). I have come a long way as I have served as an Area Director (Area Director 63 – District 30 in Chicago), was a club mentor (Imbibe Toastmasters Club in Niles, IL), and VP of Education for three Toastmasters clubs. I'm looking forward to continued opportunities to improve my public speaking and presentations skills. P.S. In my spare time, I enjoy writing, creating art, hiking, biking, and binge watching documentaries.

Sunny Fridge (DTM)
Hi everyone! I’m a New York girl living in a Mississippi world! I grew up in Queens. I relocated to the Magnolia State in 1996 and love the people, cuisine and the southern hospitality. My educational background includes a doctorate from Jackson State University, a master's from Fordham University and a bachelor's in Communications from the College of New Rochelle. I'm an award-winning Toastmaster, broadcast professional and journalism educator. I taught at J-S-U for 15 years in the Mass Communications department. I’m currently an adjunct professor in the Communication department at Belhaven University and Antonelli College. When it comes to entrepreneurship I wear several hats. I’m owner of Sunny Fridge Consulting, LLC. I'm a certified coach, teacher, and speaker with the John Maxwell Team. I'm also a presentation skills coach. I’m super excited to be among so many leaders and communicators!! I received my Distinguished Toastmasters (DTM), which is the highest educational award in Toastmasters International in July 2019. I serve as Sergeant at Arms for Competitive Communicators. Thanks to technology, it’s a virtual opportunity to serve fellow toastmasters in new and exciting ways. I serve as President of Central Mississippi Advanced Toastmasters (CMAT) in Jackson MS. Toastmasters has empowered me to prepare speeches for my business 'Lunch & Learns' and hone my leadership skills. Toastmasters has helped me gain confidence as a communicator and Toastmasters can do the same for you! When I'm not serving clients, I enjoy traveling with my retired hubby (when he isn’t hunting). I love taking on small home improvement projects and I'm an unapologetic die-hard fan of HGTV. Last but not least, I love to S.M.I.L.E. (Show up, Mentor, Inspire, Listen/learn/lead Every day).
