About Us

Meet the team

In December of 2008, a handful of employees approached Ivonne Roca, Executive Vice President of HR for the Word & Brown Companies, with the idea of sponsoring a Toastmasters club.  With the professional reputation of Toastmasters International, it was a win-win proposal to establish Word & Brown’s very own corporate club.  As a result – Quote Masters began.

As Quote Masters began to excel with speech delivery and embrace the Toastmasters International proven communication program, the passion for effective communication grew.

Our Club Mentor, Jan Alesso, helped members get their feet wet, challenging participants to take on speeches in the Competent Communicator manual and to build leadership roles in the Competent Leadership manual.  She helped members learn how to follow an agenda for the weekly meetings, the importance of starting and ending on time and reinforced the value of the specific timing events within each agenda. Quote Masters was off to a great start!

As Quote Masters began to excel with speech delivery and embrace the Toastmasters International proven communication program, the passion for effective communication grew.  It soon became obvious to share this passion, not only on a corporate level, but to the community.  Thus, effective 10/5/10, Quote Masters transitioned from a corporate club to an open/community club.

Since then, Quote Masters is receiving members from different professions, from various life stages, and from diverse goal orientations.  New ideas are being organized, from incorporating the Toastmasters training platform in corporate venues, to establishing a youth program to build confidence, leadership and presentation skills for the younger generation.

Come be part of the vibrant Quote Masters club and bring your own flavor of success.  Find out what it means to embrace our motto:  Real communication.  Real change.  Real difference.”

Member Testimonials

"Joining Quote Masters was one of the best decisions I've made in my life."

Jack Nguyen, CEO - Loyolty Apparel Company

“As my career grew with the company, I needed to develop my communication skills more and more…I’ve learned a great deal about speaking and listening and now realize the importance of the overall program.  For me, it took getting into a formal organization—such as Toastmasters—to understand what total communication is all about.”

Peters Coors, CEO – Coors Brewing Company


“I’d never thought of myself as a great communicator, and that’s one of the reasons I got involved.  The idea of getting in front of a group, not as Mrs. Fields but really as Debbi, made my knees shake, and I’d get all dry-mouthed.  But the Toastmasters group understood.  Here’s a place where you can learn, grow, develop—and where other people are doing and feeling the same thing.”

Debbi Fields Rose, Founder – Mrs. Fields Cookies
