I wanted to join the club to overcome my fear of speaking in public. I never thought I’d be able to get up in front of a full room and speak confidently and without nerves. A year in and I’ve successfully spoken at a conferences in front of up to 90 people.
I was a ‘self taught’ presenter of workshops, though I felt my message was not getting across to my audience. Thanks to the club I have learnt many valuable communication tools. Now my workshops are more effective – with stronger punchier messages that get to the point! Toastmasters has also given me a wonderful group of new ‘friends’, who encourage, advise and support me!
