Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. In fact, it’s Where Leaders Are Made. Membership of 292,000 strong, where individuals improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 13,500 Clubs in 122 countries that make up a global network of meeting locations.
For those of us who are — or have ever been — members…. we each have our unique story of how we found Toastmasters — whether being told to attend by a boss — dragged by a colleague or spouse — or sought it out on our own. However we found our way to the Club meeting room, the important thing is, we FOUND it!
Whether we were scared, overwhelmed or excited — we faced our fears, introduced ourselves, responded to that first Table Topic impromptu question, presented our first speech, the Icebreaker, accepted feedback — and came back for more!
Whether you are new to Toastmasters, or a seasoned member, you will enjoy, relate to and celebrate these genuine stories shared by fellow Toastmasters… sharing the passion, successes and gratitude of our membership.
The Heart of a Toastmaster book is featured on the back cover of the Toastmasters Magazine, August 2013 issue.
