International Director

Monnica Rose joined Toastmasters in February 2006 to improve her communication and leadership skills. Can you believe she was once shy? After attending a Toastmasters event outside of her club, Monnica was hooked on all the exciting opportunities the Toastmasters program had to offer. 

Now, Monnica doesn’t meet a stranger…As a retired mechanical engineer, Toastmaster and Board President for Women of Visionary Influence, she has mentored, motivated and encouraged many in achieving their communication and leadership goals.

From her experiences, Monnica states, “Those who fully embrace all that the Toastmasters program has to offer will truly have a life-changing experience.”

At our gala Monnica shared her experiences in her keynote:

“Platinum Leadership: Decide, Commit, Be Accountable”

Our Masters of Ceremony featured our themes:
