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)
