  • Years ago toastmasters scared me. I joined Toastmasters in 1994 at the suggestion of my boss – who was also a toastmaster My confidence and speaking skills are miles ahead of where I was – and I did community and board presentations before. I have seen hundreds of people develop incredible speaking skills through the confidence and training that Toastmasters provides. I have enjoyed every year I have been a Toastmaster.
