Keynote speaker - Toastmasters Past International President Ed Bick, DTM

Ed Bick photo

Ed began his Toastmaster experience in Charleston, South Carolina while serving in the United States Air Force. Since then, Business and Personal moves have taken him to 6 different Districts in 5 Regions. During those travels, he served as District Governor (now Director) from 1979-1980 and International Director from 1981-1983 while living in South Dakota. He began his service on the Executive Committee in 1987 and served as International President from 1990-1991 while residing in Cincinnati, Ohio.


Professionally, Ed earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Engineering and a commission in the US Air Force from South Dakota State University. Following his 4 year commitment to the Air Force, he returned to South Dakota and entered the food industry. Initially working as an Industrial Engineer for John Morrell he was recruited to Swift and Company where he served in a number of different roles, retiring in 2014 as the Senior Vice President of Pork Operations.


Ed has since returned to work for Swift as a consultant because, in his words: “I didn’t get the retirement thing correct the first time around so they are making me do it over”.


Ed and his wife, Jennifer, will celebrate 46 years together this spring and enjoy spending as much time as possible with their daughter, son-in-law and two lively grandsons.

District 22 Toastmasters - Serving Kansas and Western Missouri

About Toastmasters District 22

District 22 of Toastmasters International includes Toastmasters clubs located in Kansas and western Missouri.

About Toastmasters International

Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Our membership is more than 332,000 members. Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 15,400 clubs in 135 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations.

The world needs leaders. Leaders head families, coach teams, run businesses and mentor others. These leaders must not only accomplish, they must communicate. By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program. Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.
