Why should you join The A-Team Toastmasters Club?
There’s many reasons why people choose to join our club. For many; they are seeking to advance in their chosen career by learning to better communicate; for others it’s a great way for personal growth; maybe you’re looking to network or find like- minded adults to connect with on a personal level. Whatever your reason, there’s no doubt the way we communicate is powerful.
Think about it- There are over 5 ways to communicate, aside from verbal we also communicate with our body, eyes, posture and facial expressions. We carry this where ever we go and as long as we are awake and present, we are communicating. I joined Toastmasters for personal growth but what I have learned has supersede any expectations I had. It’s incredible what you learn about yourself, others and the power of communication. Because of Toastmasters, my relationships are stronger, I speak with purpose, I’m aware of what I say both verbally and non verbally; most importantly I learned that strong communication skills are your most powerful asset for first impressions.
Considering that you know how important first impressions are you should know that this isn’t a place where you should feel inadequate- especially if you are a new comer! We are a group who enjoys growth, encouragement and constructive criticism. We all consider ourselves a work in progress.
Stop by our club on the First and Third Friday of every month to check out the fun!
