WHY WE LOVE TOASTMASTERS
Within two months of joining Portland Rotary Toastmasters, I had “found my voice” and personal confidence. I am now eager to express my thoughts in professional settings and am the first to stand and offer a toast at family gatherings.
Before Portland Rotary Toastmasters, if I was at a meeting and the chairman called for volunteers to speak before a group, I tried to quietly slip under the table where I would not be noticed. Now, I am the first to say, “I’ll do it!”
More than overcoming the fear of public speaking I have learned to connect with people deeper, story telling better, listening better, and communicating deeper and more personal.
