The new Toastmasters International President speech in Cincinatti


He begins telling stories of his life and how all of his problems lead him to Toastmasters (and his second wife). Towards 5.30 minutes he cites the Daoist paradox of "letting go":
when I let go what I am I can become what I may be
when I let go what I have I receive what I need
when I feel most destroyed I am about to grow 
… and I made the decision to turn back to Taiwan
there,
I had a blind date with Toastmasters.
Now he has been in Toastmasters more then 20 years.
