Now that we are half way through 2016, have you thought about where you want to be by the end of this year? Do you want a promotion? Are your communication skills helping your career or hindering it? Could you improve your confidence in your business and personal conversations?
Memphis Advanced Toastmasters can help you with all these things and more. Through Toastmasters you can learn not only communication but leadership skills in a warm, friendly environment. A Memphis Advanced Toastmasters Club meeting isn’t anything like that speech class you took in school. There are no grades or final exams. Instead you will find a lively group of welcoming adults from various professions and walks of life. You will find helpful mentors and motivating challenges that will have you improving your skills in a relatively painless and definitely entertaining environment.
How Does It Work?
A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere. There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success. Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop skills related to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedure. Members learn communication skills by working in the Competent Communication manual, a series of 10 self-paced speaking assignments designed to instill a basic foundation in public speaking.
