Speak Easy Toastmasters are back

Hello again. Summer is almost over and it is almost time to start thinking of what to do for the long evenings. This year, why not try something different? Whether you are unemployed, a student,a professional, a stay-at-home parent or retiree, Toastmasters is the best way to build great communication skills. You will learn how to successfully organize and present your ideas and yourself. Toastmasters will give you the skills and confidence you need to effectively express yourself in any situation. A Toastmasters club is not a classroom, it is a workshop where members meet once a fortnight to learn communication skills, such as how to speak with confidence, think on your feet, listen effectively, make new friends and, most importantly, to enjoy themselves. Speak Easy Toastmasters Club is affiliated to Toastmasters International which has over 10,500 clubs worldwide with almost a quarter of a million members and in Mallow Speak Easy Toastmasters meet on alternate Thursday nights at 8pm sharp, from September to May. This is a special year for Speakeasy Toastmasters, as this year marks our 20th anniversary. To mark this, in the interval between our usual account of our fortnightly meetings, this column will present articles by our members on aspects of their experience as members of Speakeasy. Guests are most welcome to attend our meetings and for as often as they like, so why not come along as our guest on Thursday September 6th and see what we are about? Don’t worry, guests attending a Toastmasters meeting are never asked to speak.
