Member Spotlight: President Scotty Byers

Talk of the Tower (TOT) is excited scottybyersto introduce our new President, Scotty Byers! Our club is
excited to have such a passionate guy leading our club. Scotty is the energizer bunny. He is CEO of scottybyers.com, a professional speaker, personal trainer, and author of The Champions Manifesto, his first book in his Urban Texas Leadership Series. Needless to say, he’s got a lot on his plate, but he’s really made time for his fellow TOTs.

Scotty joined our club in April 2015 to improve his speaking skills and get candid feedback. The biggest thing Toastmasters has done for him is create awareness. He’s now aware that he should smile more, inject humor, slow down, and get rid of crutch words once and for all (dang that clicker)! His goals as President are to continue our growth and help our members achieve their goals through open communication and encouragement.

So, what’s one thing most people DON’T know about Scotty? He’s a big sensitive guy who tears up at the drop of a hat! He’s from Paris, TX, an avid sports fan, married to Alexis and a proud father of two sons – Skye and Breck. Plus two fur babies – Kozzie and Coco!

Talk of the Tower is President’s Distinguished!

Hats off to each and every member of Talk of the Tower and congratulations on this incredible achievement! Thank you for the hard work you have put in the past year to make our club soar.

Special shout out to our Area Director, Mickey Bennett, and our Division Director, Terrence McGuire, who sparked a momentum that helped our club exceed its membership goal of 18 members.

What does it mean to be President’s Distinguished? Toastmasters International rates clubs on how well they encourage members to pursue and achieve their personal and professional public speaking and leadership goals. President’s Distinguished is the highest level of recognition possible, meaning our club met at least nine of the ten goals. Select Distinguished is awarded to clubs who meet seven of the ten club goals; and Distinguished Clubs meet five of the ten club goals.

Keep up the good work, team!
