August Upcoming Events

Chapter Meeting

We holds our regular chapter every 3rd Wednesday of the month. On 20th August, it will be our 39th chapter meeting.

A toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a friendly atmosphere. Members learn communication skills by working in the Competent Communication manual, a series of 10 self-paced speaking assignment to instill a foundation in public speaking. Participants will learn skills related to use of humour, gestures, eye contact, speech organization and overall delivery.

There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another's presentation. This feeback process is a key part of the program success.

Surveys after surveys shows that presentation skills are crucial to success in the workplace. Many people pay high fees for seminars to gain the skills and confidence neccessary to face an audience. Toastmasters provides and option that is less expensive and held in high regard in business circles. This organization has been around for more then 84 years and offer an proven - and enjoyable - way to practice and hone communication and leaderships skills.
