Looking To Develop Speaking and Leadership Skills?
Ace a job interview? Ignite your career? Toastmasters International can help. Toastmasters International is a nonprofit educational organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills through a worldwide network of clubs. The organization currently has more than 260,000 members in approximately 12,500 clubs in 113 countries. Since it’s founding in October 1924, the organization has helped more than 4 million men and women give presentations with poise and confidence. For information about local Toastmasters clubs, please visit toastmasters.org. So, how does it work? Toastmasters clubs offer a “learn-by-doing” workshop in which participants practice speaking and leadership skills in a friendly atmosphere. Members learn communication skills by following a series of 10 self-paced speaking assignments designed to instill a basic foundation in public speaking. Members can also learn leadership skills by taking on various meeting roles and serving as officers in the club and district levels. There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting, instead, members evaluate one another’s oral presentations. Feedback and evaluations is key to the program’s success. You are invited to see what Toastmasters has to offer by visiting Syosset Toastmasters. Join us at the Syosset Public Library, 225 South Oyster Bay Road on Thursday July 26, at 7:30 p.m. For more information visit their website at http://3627.toastmastersclubs.org or call 516-313-0215.
