Anthony Cooper, Quality Improvement Analyst, Performance Improvement Specialist, Financial Analyst, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Maryland Enterprise

I have known Allan Kaufman since 1991 when I joined the Randallstown Network Toastmaster club that he had fashioned into a trend setting group—widely recognized for its excellence in growing great communicators. Knowledge gained from Allan and fellow members of Randallstown Network Toastmasters made it possible for me to survive two years of corporate downsizings by setting up a company sponsored Toastmasters club modeled after Allan’s Randallstown Network Club. Our mission patterned after lessons I learned from Allan Kaufman was adding value to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Maryland by facilitating interdepartmental communication between people of diverse backgrounds and experience.

Allan Kaufman radiates excitement and enthusiasm. His passion for speaking excellence is captivating. A true mentor, he constantly talks up the many successes of his mentees. A great leader, he is always on the front-line cheering on those fortunate enough to have shared time with him as a Toastmaster, a student of one of his classes or a member of one of the organizations to which he belongs.

Allan Kaufman is one of those rare individuals in life who possesses the ability to dramatically affect, for the better, the lives of people he has touched.

With appreciation for Allan’s special window on the world, Tony Cooper. (September 17, 2007)

“Allan is the most effective and enthusiastic public speaker and coach I have ever met. Any topic no matter how mundane it is Allan will convert that into a most interesting speech and that too without any preparation. He is one of the best gurus of public speaking. It is not only his excellent command over language that makes him exceptional but also the energy with which he delivers his each and every speech is simply superb. As a coach I have learned a lot from Allan. I will recommend anyone who is living in Baltimore or Washington DC area to contact Allan for any public speaking help. (February 8, 2012)” — A
