David Nicholas 6 times DTM

David Nicholas has just achieved his 6th Distinguished Toastmaster award.  What an achievement.  This puts David in the top echelons of  Toastmasters from all over the world.

David, on behalf of the Victoria Quay Toastmasters Club, which David  was a founding member of 16 years ago, and its members,  I would like to congratulate you, not only for your DTM achievement but for your years of dedication, passion and mentor-ship for our club and many other clubs and members who have benefited from your assistance.

David is a skillful, supportive and positive Toastmaster who has helped many people over the years achieve their goals within TMI and in particular within  WA,  He has been a long time and influential  leader within the TM organisation and is recognised for his outstanding effort.

David has been one of the driving forces behind WA being awarded its own district.  Well done David from all of us a Victoria Quay.

    Well done to David on this incredible achievement of 6 DTMs. If you know the amount of time it needs just to get 1 DTM, to get 6 is amazing.
    David has always been an inspiration to me as well as being a mentor and a friend and I can’t stress enough how much work and dedication David has given to, not only Victoria Quay, but to all of Toastmasters in WA.
    When WA becomes it’s own District 17 in July 2011, it was David’s foresight and commitment that made this pipedream become a reality.
    Congratulations to the most dedicated Toastmaster I know, for your 6th DTM and may there be many more.

    Thank you for your comments, Mark.

    I have always felt my most important contribution to Toastmasters in WA is to identify future leaders and to encourage them to take on increasing responsibilities. Our great success which is at last culminating in District 17 on July 1 comes from the crop of outstanding new leaders who have emerged. You are one of them Mark and it’s very appropriate that you are in line to be our first District Governor.

    You have two DTMs now. I’m sure you have more in the pipeline. I will be very pleased and even proud when you pass whatever number I then have. It will mean you have continued to provide inspirational leadership over the long haul.

    David Nicholas
