Are you afraid to speak in public? Would you rather - as Jerry Seinfeld famously joked - be in the coffin than giving the eulogy? Why not join Toastmasters?
I joined Toastmasters two years ago, and it has been a great experience! I meet interesting people, bolster my confidence and learn new speaking skills. I enjoy writing and revising prepared speeches, but what really thrills me was giving impromptu speeches about a topic for which I have no time to prepare. The adrenalin rush (no, really!) is so satisfying! With armpits slightly moist, I leave each session of Toastmasters feeling energized and proud of myself.
Toastmasters provides a supportive, non-judgmental environment in which all skill levels are welcome. In addition to fostering public speaking skills, Toastmasters also has a leadership program.
Why not observe a session of Toastmasters? Drop in on Tuesday nights, 5:30 – 6:30 PM, Central library, meeting room 2. Register here!
You'll never feel "put on the spot" again!
