I have been lucky enough to be a charter member of a new club on the south coast of WA. This is an added bonus as it is possible to take on leadership roles in conjunction with the highly successful Toastmaster communication program.
I had already been introduced to Public Speaking before I joined Toastmasters in early 2006 but nothing compares with what I have gained from my membership with Amity Toastmasters. Apart from improving my speaking skills I have gained in self confidence which has opened doors to a new career at the age of 63.
As well as my part-time bookkeeping position I am assisting in organising author promotional events, writing book reviews, assisting in promoting bookclubs in rural WA and am registered with Toastmasters Speakers Bureau.
None of this would have been possible without the educational program from this wonderful non-profit organisation â€“Toastmasters.
