MEET THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
Committed to the Cause
Being part of the Ex Com is a fantastic opportunity to build leadership and communication skills, set goals as a team, while having a great time and ensuring growth and the stability of the club.
Vik is a solar person with an amazing voice and mesmerizing energy. She is a freelance editorial director and speaker coach for professional events which gives her free time to let her jazz sparkle over the world. She’s from Lithuania, but she has studied in the US and she currently lives in Paris.
Kasia as VPE helps our members achieve their speaking goals and ambitions. She has an analytical mind and crunching numbers is her job. In her free time, she enjoys small concerts in underground clubs of Paris, impressionist art and is an amateur of racket sports. Toastmasters is her recent passion that brings her a lot of inspiration!
DEPUTY VP EDUCATION- Q 1 & 2
Solli is a curious and adventurous Swedish expat who is challenging
her longtime fear of public speaking at Toastmasters while having fun. She is passionate about photography and loves to explore off the beaten path leaving her with thrilling stories to share. Not long ago she left the corporate world and set off as a freelancer specialized in digital marketing and has a black-belt in multi-tasking!
Tania has lived in a few countries before finding her home away from home in Paris. She joined Speak Up Paris! Because speaking in front of people has often triggered the ‘dear in the headlights’ effect and crippled her otherwise cheerful character! Tania has since learnt to find joy in public speaking and – as VP membership – is devoted to making sure that more people join the ranks of Toastmasters. She loves road-trips and would give her right arm for an endless supply of Watermelons.
VP PUBLIC RELATIONS
Johanna is a dynamic public speaking coach and a facilitator of collective intelligence. She is American, from a multicultural family, and is passionate about adventure, meeting people, public speaking and unblocking people’s limiting beliefs. She believes in creative living and loves to dance modern jazz and drink good wine. Her favorite word is mischievous… and she thinks that one shouldn’t take life too seriously!
Ashish is an energetic team player who is passionate about public speaking and English/Hindi poetry. Having traveled to different countries, he has developed curiosity in diverse languages and cultures. He values diversity, knowledge, sharing and continuous improvement which attracted him to Speak Up Paris! As the Secretary of the club, his role involves handling the administrative details and ensuring that the Ex-com team actions are agreed and implemented.
Temi loves travelling, discovering new cultures and is now passionate about public speaking. Toastmasters is for her a great way to meet like-minded people striving to enhance their skills and go beyond their comfort zone. Honored to be the Treasurer this year, she is responsible for the financial budgeting and planning of the club. She loves pestering her family with her camera by taking many candid photos of them!
SERGEANT at ARMS
Luis arrived recently in Paris after several years of moving from place to place. He joined Toastmasters to inoculate himself against the fear of public speaking. As the Sergeant -at- arms, he makes sure that there is a venue available for each meeting and handles the club’s materials. He likes taking power naps, climbing and taking long walks in nature (or to the next bar).
iMMEDIATE PAST PRESIDENT
Lucy is one of our chartered members, she has been a member of Speak Up Paris! Since day one. She is passionate about politics and protecting the environment.

DEPUTY VP EDUCATION Q 3 & 4
Anousak just joined the Ex Com in Jan 2020, and will be taking over as the Deputy VPE for the rest of the year.
Anousak is a curious and open-minded person who loves travelling to discover new types of food. He recently joined Toastmaster to start a new challenge in a fun environment surrounded by positive and interesting people.
During the day, he wears a suit and gives presentations as a consultant. But at night, he prefers his leather jacket, enjoys Miles Davis on his turntable and endless debates with his friends"
