Toastmasters International in Blacksburg, VA

This is a plug for Toastmasters International "... with more than 13,000 clubs and more than 270,000 members in 116 countries." It is for anyone who wants to be a more effective speaker or story teller, including:
  • Those who are pretty good speakers
  • Anyone who is scared to death to speak publicly
  • Students, community members, professionals, retirees, locals, internationals
  • Anyone who wants to learn
Even polished sales people and motivational speakers join Toastmasters.

Here in Blacksburg, VA there are 2 groups that meet twice a month for an hour. Come by and check one or both out! And the dues are cheap  - pennies a day for coaching, guidance, workbooks, a magazine, and more free resources. I'll be attending this week and most days there is a meeting - to continue my own learning, be around supportive people, and to practice and improve my own public speaking skills.
