A truly life-empowering program called Toastmasters is waiting for you!
Founded in 1924 by Dr. Ralph C. Smedley in a Santa Ana, California YMCA, new Toastmasters clubs sprang up very soon around the country.
Today there are more than 15,000 clubs in more than 130 countries, with 300,000-plus members. Here in Oklahoma where I live, we have nearly 100 clubs and more than 1,000 members throughout the state (District 16).
Honestly, this is the most supportive, effective educational group I've ever been part of. Not only have I developed effective communications and speaking skills and the confidence to stand and speak anywhere, any time; I've also honed my leadership abilities and my skills at organizing projects and working with teams. My Toastmasters experience keeps me moving forward.
I strongly encourage you to find a Toastmasters club near you. To start, visit www.toastmasters.org and click Find a Club.
Toastmasters offers the opportunity to improve through speaking tips, techniques, performing assigned roles, peer evaluations, group events and much more.
It's a time-proven experience:
