Hooper’s Hop to Competent Communication!

Wayne Hooper, tenured technical manager at Rackspace joined The Toast Rack a short 9 months ago.

Wayne took his time at a few meetings to assess the situation, learn the basic roles and functions of a TM meeting, then started booking speeches in.

One after the other, he picked up pace and became a regular hit. He sought evaluations, practising with other colleagues and charging on.


As he powered through, he set a new standard at the model corporate club. His tenacity overflowed to others and the general morale and attitude has been lifted with Wayne’s drive and commitment.

We are happy to congratulate Wayne on completion and has just completed his Competent Communication manual.

The CC manual is the first of 2 tracks in the Toastmasters International framework, the second being the Competent Leadership manual.
