An Opportunity to Change Your Life

Can you remember one of those pivotal times in your life when someone said something to you that changed your life?

For me, meeting Ted Corcoran was one of those times. The man I met had something unique about him. It was the way he framed his answers to my questions.  It was the support he gave you when he knew it would be a challenge to accomplish the goals you had set for yourself. I must say he is even very forgiving when you spell his name wrong occasionally. If you want to hear a motivational presentation, this is the guy to get it from.  He will be with the Trio travelling the province at District 21 COT’s and Public Events (more info to come). Be sure to join us at one of these events near you this January!

Ted Corcoran,  Past International President from Ireland, and D21’s Mentor

Bio: Ted Corcoran joined Fingal toastmasters club in 1985 in Dublin. Having served at club and district level, he was elected District Governor of District 71 in 1994/1995 and led his district to President’s Distinguished District status, finishing second in the world in achievements that year.

This led to his election for a two-year term as an International Director in St Louis, Missouri in 1996, representing all the Toastmasters in the rest of the world outside North America.

In 2000, in Miami, he was elected 3rd Vice President and went on to serve as International President in 2003/2004, the first, and only European, to do so in the 90-year history of the organization.

As President, he presided over an International Board of 23, and 200,000 members in 10,000 clubs in 90 countries. His duties took him all over the world… to Australia, South Africa, the Middle East, Europe, USA, Canada, UK, and, naturally, to every corner of Ireland.  In total, Ted served for seven years on the Board of Directors – five as an officer and two as a director.

In 2011/12 he served as Region Advisor for Region 11 of Toastmasters International which brought him to Scotland, Switzerland, Belgium, India and South Africa.

He is an honorary member of eight Toastmasters clubs and regularly attends both the Fingal and Swords clubs in Dublin.

He has also been a member of Rotary International since 1991 and served as the President of the Dublin Rotary club (founded in 1911) in 2001/2002.

All the best,

John Sherber PQD D21
