  • Celina Templeman DTM

    Celina Templeman DTM

    Immediate Past District 72 Director CELINA TEMPLEMAN When Celina joined Toastmasters in 2012 it was her second time as a member. She had previously been a Toastmaster back in 2001/2002 joining to gain confidence and become a better speaker. She has been an Area Director twice, Division Director, Program Quality Director and was the District 72 Director for the first year after Reformation when Toastmasters separated into 2 Districts in New Zealand. Celina finds the leadership roles extremely rewarding and valuable, as they provide stunning personal growth in terms of confidence in speaking. She says “I enjoy visiting clubs as each visit is a new place to test and utilise the skills I have gained through Toastmasters, sharing that knowledge with others. You start out your term for any Toastmaster Leadership role, feeling out of your depth; yet at the end of your term, you wish you could do it all again.” Toastmasters leadership is where I have gained most of my growth as a Speaker and as a Leader. Toastmasters provides the perfect stimulation which fits in with the lifestyle Celina and her husband David have with growing flowers for the florist market, fruit produce and the challenges of raising their 4 boys aged 13-21. Come along and hear Celina share some of her stories and lessons from her leadership journey from life and most especially Toastmasters.
