How To Get Organized

Seems like a daily occurrence that a new hot software package hits the Internet with the promise to change your life forever.

And, I have been pretty good at not recommending every new shiny thing that passes by but today thanks to one of my buddies in my Amateur Radio Club I’d like to introduce you to a new software package that is perfect for Toastmasters.

It’s called Trello and it’s FREE!

So what is it? Here’s the copy from the Trello site:

Trello is a collaboration toll that organizes your projects into boards. In one glance, Trello tells you what’s being worked on, who’s working on what, and where something is in a process.

Okay but what does it really do?

First it’s a really cool way of making a “to do” list that can sync itself over different platforms and devices. In other words it doesn’t matter if you’ve got a PC or Mac and whether you’re running a desktop, laptop, tablet or smart phone.

I could see Toastmasters organizing their speeches using Trello. The meeting agenda could be done on Trello with every role assigned and confirmed online.

The club executive might consider organizing their executive meetings using Trello to keep notes, minutes and to do lists current.

The club secretary might even use it to keep the club minutes online and available to all members for corrections and storage.

Trello seems like a pretty neat piece of software.
