An accomplished strategy consultant, Alexander Mosnick draws upon distinguished educational and professional experience in his work with Aon Inpoint Consulting in Chicago, Illinois. Outside of his professional life, Alexander Mosnick belongs to civic and community organizations such as Toastmasters International.

Unofficially founded in 1905 by a YMCA employee in Bloomington, Illinois, Toastmasters International was originally formed to help young men learn the art of public speaking and develop civic leadership skills. Since that time, Toastmasters has evolved into an international organization focused on communication, personal growth, and leadership development with more than 350,000 members across 141 countries.

Among other initiatives, Toastmasters International operates the Youth Leadership Program, which offers youth under the age of 18 the opportunity to develop public speaking and leadership skills through a series of one- or two-hour workshops. These workshops typically run for eight weeks and are limited to groups of 25 locally nominated students at each club.

Participants in the workshops learn critical personal and communication skills such as how to prepare a speech, how to give an impromptu talk, and the art of constructive feedback. To learn more about the Toastmasters International Youth Leadership Program, please visit www.toastmasters.org.
