Have you ever wanted to improve your public speaking skills, or are petrified to speak in public? Why not join your local Toastmasters group?
Mike & I are members of Toastmasters Dining to Speak group in NJ, and we love it! We have been working on eliminating our um’s and ah’s from our speaking, becoming better at organizing a speech to fit into the time frame alotted and making some great friends along the way.
Every speaker teaches us something, not only by the topic they speak about, but also by the constructive supportive evaluation that they receive.
Our group Dining To Speak, also chows down on some great Italian food because we meet in a private room at a restaurant.
Toastmasters is a great forum where you get to practice speaking, even if it is just for 30 seconds or more if you like, once a month to get used to speaking in front of other people.
Many corporations have their own Toastmasters groups to help the employees with their communications skills and presentations too.
It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, or whatever, Toastmasters is a club that offers support and help for those looking to come out of their shell,… all in a comfortable atmosphere where there are no mistakes or embarrassment!
So go and join you local Toastmasters, and see where it can take you…
