There aren’t many occasions in my life that had as profound and long reaching consequences as getting involved with Toastmasters. Being a member has helped me to discover my voice. Before being a member, my thoughts were often bound within the confines of my mind.
The Toastmasters learning program is self paced; allowing each member to progress at a rate that benefits them. With the incredible support given by other members, every person that joins can’t help but become a better listener, a better speaker, a better leader and a better all round communicator. I certainly did.
I find that going to a toastmaster meeting always inspires me and I always go home with more knowledge than I had before the meeting. I have improved social contacts within and outside of the organisation, I have improved my job and my salary just by applying principles learnt in the comprehensive manuals.
I have been a member for around seven years now and I look forward to maintaining my membership and continuing the benefits meetings give for a long time to come. If you are thinking of finding out more about toastmasters, let me advise you not to hesitate to find the club which suits you best (location and time wise) and go along to the very next meeting scheduled – just to visit. I can guarantee that it will be a decision you’ll never regret.
