Toastmasters is the best way for anyone — whether a working professional, student, stay-at-home parent or retiree — to improve communication and leadership skills. Members overcome the fear of public speaking and learn skills that aid them in becoming more successful. Toastmasters creates better listeners and stronger team members and leaders who can comfortably give and receive constructive evaluation.
At the November WBOC meeting, three toastmasters will share basic information about Toastmasters. Then, the toastmasters will facilitate “Table Topics,” in three smaller group settings, to give everyone a taste of a Toastmaster meeting, help them discover an inner strength and learn more about other WBOC members.
The program’s leading toastmasters:
