Relaxed atmosphere and friendly members. I felt very welcome from my first visit.
Toastmasters gave me the confidence in public speaking to open a small home-based business as well as be hired as a Provincial Delegation trainer with the Alberta Government. The leadership roles and public speaking practice you do weekly along with the supportive environment from your home group are part of why I am doing what I am doing successfully.
Thank you all for being part of an incredible year. As I have been away this spring, I have come to appreciate the speaking and evaluating skills we learn. Skills that have certainly added to the enjoyment I find as I begin speaking more and more to various groups.
I believe in continuous education, and that one should never stop learning. Toastmasters is a great place to sharpen your communication skills, to develop and demonstrate leadership, and to actively engage with people from various fields, while making friends. I am excited to be part of the executive board and to help the club grow and flourish. That’s my way of giving back. Whether you are an experienced or a beginner public speaker, this club will be of enormous help, as it also includes members from many different levels, who can provide you with valuable feedback tailored to you individually. Everyone is very encouraging and want you to succeed. The best club I’ve attended.
