Daytona Beach, FL., July 15, 2022 — Deanna Hinsz of DeLand, Florida, is the new President of Toastmasters at Twelve, Daytona Beach. Toastmasters International is the world’s leading organization devoted to communication and leadership skills development. Hinsz assumed the one-year term at an event held on June 21.
A lifelong entrepreneur, Hinsz is the owner of CarbonSilk, a boutique digital marketing and consulting agency. She helps entrepreneurs and small business owners take the chaos out of digital marketing and find the freedom they desire. She is particularly focused on championing women, especially those who have a desire to create a life they love and on their terms. In her personal time, she enjoys time with her husband, visiting family and friends in Ohio and Montana, and volunteering for community projects.
Hinsz is a certified business coach and holds a degree in psychology from Youngstown State University. She also speaks nationally at digital marketing and women empowerment conferences. As a board member of MainStreet DeLand and The Good Samaritan Clinic, Hinsz values helping others in the community.
Hinsz is a member of Toastmasters at Twelve and ACE Advanced Speakers Club in Central Florida. She is also a member of the Toastmasters Speakers Bureau in her district.
“I was invited to visit Toastmasters several times but was afraid to walk in, even though I was comfortable speaking on topics that I was familiar with in front of large audiences,” Hinsz said. “Fear of the unknown can stop us from growing. Since joining Toastmasters, my understanding and confidence have grown as a speaker and a business professional. I’m honored to be elected as president and look forward to seeing each member continue to excel.”
