Cookies and Cocktails was a HIT!  Yes, tt’s that time of year again…GIRL SCOUT cookie time!  I am the proud father of an amazing Girl Scout, Abigail, who has been enjoying her time with Troupe 3121 for over 4 years.  I’m happy to see her learning so many life skills through the great experiences and friendships Abigail gets through Girl Scouts.

Naturally, I’m excited to help my daughter reach her Cookie sale goals and I took an idea to “my club”, The University Club,  when I asked the food and beverage director (Jeff Apodaca) if he could pair wine/beer/cocktails with each flavor of Girl Scout Cookie and do an event…well, he LOVED my idea and the event took place last Wednesday the 15th…I am hoping it was successful enough to repeat this year or in years to come!

Cookies and Cocktails, Get A Klu, Troop 3121, Girl ScoutsI am SO grateful to the University Club for taking my idea and running with it. I was JUST hoping there would be pairings, but they generously gave a FREE DRINK ticket to everyone who bought cookies!

I know that many of you wanted to get to this great event, but couldn’t…so while I work with The University ClubShannon Parsons, Cookies and Cocktails, the University Club, Get A Klu to see about doing more events like this in the future, you can still buy your cookies, donate to operation thin mints and support Abigail with an online purchase!

Online Cookie sales benefit my daughter’s Troupe 3121 from Rancho Penasquitos.

Online sales have all your favorites, including Samoas, Tagalongs, Thin Mints, and more!

Online Cookie sales give you the option of delivery by mail OR in person!  We will gladly come see you wherever you need us to!  Thank you so much to everyone who supports Abigail and Troupe 3121 this year!

To Your Success!

Jeffrey Klubeck, M.A.

I LOVE Toastmasters…and that’s not just because I gave an “award winning” humorous speech for Toastmasters a few years ago.

In short, Toastmasters Clubs develop Public Speaking and Leadership Skills.

I’m getting more involved with Toastmasters this year and to kick off 2017, so I’m excited to announce one of Get a Klu’s favorite clients, Chef Works Inc., has agreed to partner with us to launch a new Toastmasters Club. You can read more about Toastmasters below or by visiting their website.

chefworks-logoThis blog becomes outdated on January 9th as we’ll be hosting our first “mock meeting” where you can learn more about Toastmasters, how a club works overall, how specific meetings are run, what you can get out of it and, of course, how you can contribute to the Club’s success!

toastmasters-logoWHEN: January 9th 2017 at 11:30 a.m.

WHERE: Chef Works Corporation Headquarters is located at 12325 Kerran Street • Poway, CA 92064

WHY: First of all, Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Members of Toastmasters improve their speaking and leadership skills by regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere. The results are greater self-confidence, personal growth and deepened relationships with fellow club members.

Every meeting of a Toastmasters Club features several different forms of Public Speaking (impromptu and prepared speeches, oral evaluations, functionary reports and more!) and also provides several “leadership” opportunities due to the roles/functionaries that are required to run each meeting.

Secondly, Jeff Klubeck is an International Speaking Trainer and Coach who brings 20 years of experience teaching Public Speaking to the Club. His passion, experience and expertise when it comes to Public Speaking Coaching/Training is an incredible “value add” to the host of benefits Toastmasters offers its members.toastmasters on the big stage

Finally, GREAT networking with fellow friends/clients of Get A Klu as well as the SUPER Chef Works employees who take advantage of this wonderful benefit being provided for them.

Again, we will explain ALL of this to you when you attend the Information Session (“mock meeting”) on Monday January 9th at 11:30 am PST. Make sure to let me know if you can make it. Also feel free to share this event with your friends and colleauges.

If you can’t wait to get the Toastmasters info, feel free to contact Jeff Klubeck directly (jeff@getaklu.net or 619-405-3356) if you have any questions!
