When I tested the waters in the spring of 2016 at a Toastmasters Speechcraft, I noticed how attending a bi-weekly 1-hr meeting held me accountable to my commitment to my own growth and development. Unlike going to college and piling up thousands of dollars in debt, I instead invested about $100 and 36 hrs a year to build my self-confidence, learn essential leadership skills, and grow my professional network.
I have finally come to a point in my life where I can celebrate myself and my accomplishments and not care what anyone else thinks. I give myself permission to shine even when others are uncomfortable with it.
If you would like to celebrate with me and other DTM’s at the Distinguished Toastmasters Hall of Fame Luncheon April 18, 2020, at the Marriott, Atlanta-Emory Area, tickets are available for a limited time. Join us and see how Toastmasters can transform your life. Continue reading Distinguished Toastmasters Hall of Fame Luncheon

Versandra, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today. As a young overworked African American woman raising two children working 50-60 hours a week, climbing the corporate ladder, my health became compromised. While recovering from what doctors considered minor surgery I began to consider my purpose in life. I no longer wanted to work every day, all day just to survive. I wanted to live my life on purpose and I wanted to see the world. As I put into action my plan to transition into my … Continue reading Featured in Voyage ATL – Versandra Kennebrew

They say to be successful you’ve got to have grit. You’ve got to be tenacious in your efforts to achieve your goals.

But there are some things you don’t know, some things you need to unlearn, and some behaviors and beliefs you need to release if you want to rise to the next level in your career and your relationships with others. I became a Distinguished … Continue reading Why I Became A Distinguished Toastmaster
I met the fiery ego persecutions behind bars in a cold, isolated cell for 48-hrs with meekness, love, and understanding. I created a sacred healing space inside the fiery furnace. I came out with a high powered female attorney who represented me pro bono. More than $900 in fees and expenses were cleared and the inconvenience of 12 probation visits and 8 defensive driving classes, all disappeared. I was exonerated.
