The Making of Pathways


About this program

When Toastmasters International started to develop the revitalized education program, Pat Johnson was the Manager for Learning Masters who provided expertise to the new Pathways Program.

What made Toastmasters International decide to shift from 90-year-old and time-tested education programs to Pathways? What did they envision our future? What does the future mean to each of us?

Pat Johnson has the answers!

About the speaker

Pat Johnson, Past International President of Toastmasters International leads a busy life. She joined the communication and leadership organization in 1983 and has been a member ever since. Although she was involved in the communication portion of the program immediately, she soon found herself raising her hand for leadership roles and the journey continued.

In 2001/02 she led the province of British Columbia (then District 21) to 15th in the world of Toastmasters. In 2004 – 2006 she was elected and served as International Director on the International Board of Toastmasters International and continued through the Vice President roles until 2010/11 when she served this not-for-profit educational organization as their International President and Chairman of the Board. Pat is the only Canadian woman to serve in this prestigious role.

Pat has spoken in a long list of countries around the world as a keynote speaker and educator over the past ten years. She was the Manager for Learning Masters who provided expertise to the new Pathways Program, and has just recently completed the role of Host District Convention Chair for the 2017 International Convention held in Vancouver, Canada. She is the recipient of our President’s Citation Award given for outstanding leadership and communication on a global level.
