Come gather 'round people and hear the tale of Dean Masai. The man lives, breathes, and bleeds Toastmasters. He also had a lot to say about where he comes from and why he feels such a way for the organization. We talk about mentors, what it means to not give up, what it means to open up, photography, the power of belief, a positive mental attitude, and Toastmasters... so much Toastmasters and much, much, much more. We also talk about Dean's upbringing and how his family situation came into play. There's also a couple of bits where I get some praise from the man himself, which I'll gladly own up to, Dean's the best! Enjoy this conversation people. A great big thanks goes out to Dean as well for providing the wonderful space to record at his office.
