Matt Kinsey becomes second highest officer of global educational organization

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Aug. 28, 2021 — Matt Kinsey, of Coral Springs, Florida, is the new International President-Elect of Toastmasters International, the world’s leading organization devoted to communication and leadership skills development. Kinsey assumed the one-year term at the organization’s 90th annual International Convention, held virtually Aug. 23-28.

As a member of the Toastmasters International Board of Directors, Kinsey is a “working ambassador” for the organization. He works with the Board to develop and support the policies and procedures that guide Toastmasters International in fulfilling its mission.

Kinsey is the CEO of MK Tech Group in Coral Springs, Florida, which he started in 2007. Kinsey oversees all aspects of his IT consulting firm that services small and medium-sized businesses in the South Florida area.

Kinsey holds a master’s degree in computer information systems from the University of Phoenix, Arizona. He has a certificate in strategic management and was recognized with the Silver Beaver and Vigil Honor awards for his work with the Boy Scouts of America. As a Boy Scout volunteer for 25 years, he has held numerous positions within the organization including Scoutmaster, district chairman, event chairman, and the council’s camping chairman.

A Toastmaster since 2003, Kinsey is a charter member of his home club, Outspoken Toastmasters, in Coral Springs. He has held a number of high-profile leadership positions within Toastmasters and has attained the Distinguished Toastmaster designation—the highest level of educational achievement in the organization.

“I have learned that to be most successful, you need to lead with your heart and not your head,” he says. “There is no finer program than Toastmasters for helping people build their self-confidence, communication and leadership skills.”
