Toastmasters International

Learn public speaking, overcome your fears, at Toastmasters.


One of your keys to personal success is not just
public speaking, or comfort while public speaking, - but enjoying public speaking.


I dropped out of speech courses in college, I hated the pressure without reward that was involved. When I had graduated I took a job teaching, forcing myself to be at the front of the room. I also joined
Toastmasters, and learned a great deal just by attending.


At one point I eventually made a living as a public speaker, and was part of the National Speakers Association of professional speakers. I don't belong to NSA or Toastmasters today, but both helped form who I am.


Like ethical associates, those that enjoy public speaking are a rare and necessary component of most businesses' success. If you wish to be one of those individuals, you are well ahead of those others that cower at the thought of presenting.


Toastmasters has a simple easy route for acclimating yourself to speaking in public.


If there is a Toastmasters club in your area, visit a meeting. You will find many folks like yourself; smart, friendly, and eager to experience growth. If they are available, visit several public speaking groups in your area, find the one where you fit in best. In the structured environment of Toastmasters you will be led slowly into first comfort, and then pleasure, at expressing yourself in public.


If there are no Toastmasters clubs in your area you can still
learn public speaking; - Click => start your own Toastmasters club.
