During the recent Toastmasters International Conference in Toledo, Dr. Clinton Longenecker, UT professor of management, received the prestigious Toastmasters International Communications and Leadership Award 2009 for his significant contributions in business.

Presented at the organization’s district conference in November, the award recognizes a business leader who has demonstrated outstanding communication and leadership skills as defined by Toastmaster International, a nonprofit educational organization with more than 211,000 members in 10,500 clubs in 90 countries throughout the world.

“Dr. Longenecker is the recipient of this award for the difference that he has made in the lives of business leaders across the country as an educator, researcher, author, consultant and speaker,” said Toastmasters spokesperson Heather Lane. “He is committed to helping others achieve their full potential and become successful as leaders.”

“I am truly humbled by this recognition,” Longnecker said. “I try to make people a priority in everything I do, and helping people is a particular passion of mine because I enjoy seeing the success people can achieve when they are inspired and take action toward their goals and dreams.”

Lane said Longenecker’s most recent book, The Two-Minute Drill: Lessons for Rapid Organizational Improvement from America’s Greatest Game, has helped numerous organizations and businesses across the United States deal with economic challenges.

    Clint: Congrats! When I grow up I want to be just like you. I decided to wrap it up this semester, 49 years is enough I think. Dan Seemann

    Congratulations Prof. Longenecker! It was truly a pleasure to have you finish out our program in the EMBA program for Cohort 13. Your inspirational attitude and commitment to helping people become better and achieving their goals is something that people don’t get to experience everyday…if they are lucky enough to have met someone like this at all! Congratulations on the award again and stay in touch!
