When many people hear about Toastmasters, they often think that it is only for people who want to become professional speakers.
But that couldn't be further from the truth.
Toastmasters is an organization devoted to helping people improve their communication and leadership skills.
Yes, public speaking is part of that. But it is really just the beginning. Here are some other things Toastmasters can help you with:
Have you been told you don't listen well? Learn how to improve your listening skills through regular practice at our meetings.
Do you have an upcoming presentation you'll be giving for work? We can give you an opportunity to practice that speech, and offer some constructive feedback so when you give the "real" presentation, you nail it.
Do you freeze up when asked questions during meetings? Our meetings feature opportunities to give short, ad hoc speeches that will help you thaw out those situations.
Are you getting ready to take on a leadership role at work, or are you hoping for a promotion that takes you there? We can help you hone your leadership skills so you can be successful in that role.
Do you need to improve your communication style to be more concise and clear? We can provide feedback that will help you meet that goal.
In short: if one of your goals is to improve your leadership or communication skills, we can help!
Come visit one of our next meetings and we'll show you how.
