For Immediate Release
At AVOTM You Are Never Too Late to Start Again
Almaden Valley Orators Invite Members and Guests to a New Beginnings Event
San Jose, CA, May 27, 2010 -- The Almaden Valley
Orators, a local Toastmasters club, invites the local
community and the press to its New Beginnings Open
House, a free event on Thursday, June 3rd, at the Santa
Clara Valley Water District, from 12:00 pm to 1:15 pm.
After the massive lay-offs and foreclosures, the Almaden
Valley Orators officers decided to create an event to
boost local morale and to offer ideas on how to make a
new start. With speeches by Katy Fisk, Office Manager
and HR, Movaris Division of Trintech, Inc. and guest speaker Mariana
Pabon, CEO of Mint-SF, this event will shed some light on the hiring
market and how to brand yourself as a professional in 2010.
“However, our open house is actually tailored to satisfy the largest
variety of guests as possible, with the type of information that is aimed
at empowering people in general, not restricted to the workplace. As a
matter of fact, the Almaden Valley Orators TM club is the ideal place to
network and feel the pulse of the Silicon Valley community, often finding relevant, intelligent and resourceful
ideas”, explains Karina Goldrajch, Almaden Valley Orators’ president.
Once a guest decides to join the Almaden Valley Orators, he or she will receive an assigned, private mentor to
assist with the first assignments. While it may take one or two weeks for new members to receive the first
leadership and communication manuals in the mail, they can access the AVOTM website and blog, where they
are able to connect with the Toastmasters’ online platform (EasySpeak).
For the tech savvy, and especially because we are in Silicon Valley, AVOTM members receive e-mail alerts
through Yahoo Groups and via the Wordpress Blog subscription option. Members can also check for updates
on the AVOTM Twitter page, the AVOTM Facebook fanpage, the LinkedIn group and the YouTube Channel
with speeches delivered by members and accomplished public speakers.
For reasons of convenience, regular meetings are held during the lunch hour, between noon and 1:15 pm, on
the 1st , 3rd (and 5th) Thursdays of every month, at the Administration Building of the Santa Clara Valley Water
District, Room B108. For additional information, please visit www.almadenvalleyorators.org
