Grimbleby Coleman Associate Earns Toastmasters Leadership Position, Travels to Malaysia for Group

Debby Baker, an Experienced Senior Associate at Grimbleby Coleman CPAs, recently traveled as part of the official delegation to the International Toastmasters Convention in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. 

Baker, who has worked for Grimbleby Coleman for the past 10 years, joined Toastmasters seven years ago on the advice of a friend. Toastmasters members meet and work to improve both their speaking and leadership skills in 14,650 clubs throughout 126 countries. 

Baker says before she joined Toastmasters, her lack of confidence during presentations had begun to take a toll on her personally and professionally. The group was key to improving her outlook, and she has thrived in the organization: In June, Baker was elected Lieutenant Governor of Education and Training for District 33. 

District 33 is responsible for the Central Valley, Southern California and Southern Nevada, home to 205 Toastmaster clubs with more than 3,000 members. The top three officers from every district are invited to the International Toastmasters Convention, which earlier this year took place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Baker journeyed to Malaysia on behalf of District 33, something Baker never predicted or imagined herself doing for a public speaking club. 

“I have grown exponentially as a Toastmaster,” Baker said. “Not only have I become confident while giving a speech to hundreds of people, but I am also practicing what I am learning within the organization, at work, and many areas of my life. Toastmasters has made the difference for me.”

Featured Staff

Clive has, in his words, been with Grimbleby Coleman since dirt and describes his role as president, cheerleader, and bottle washer. That makes sense, since he bought the practice from his father, Roy, in 1982. At the time, he had one employee, Claudia. 

Before his entrance into business ownership, Clive received a BS in accounting from CSU Sacramento and an MBA from Golden Gate University, followed by time with Coopers & Lybrand and John Waddell Accountants. 

When he's not running the practice, Clive keeps himself actively involved in a number of community organizations.  See the list on his resume.  It will make you tired!
