When I joined Toastmasters in October 2015, I planned to be a member for a year. I just wanted to get a little bit of confidence so that I could give the occasional presentation to small groups at work. And maybe gain enough confidence that I would ‘have a voice’ and be able to speak up at meetings.
Four years later and I’ve held 3 roles on my club’s committee (Secretary, VP Public Relations and VP Education) plus a year as Area Director, looking after 7 clubs with 190 members and I’ve just started a year as President of my club, City Women Speakers. I regularly prepare and deliver 30-45 minute training presentations, organise events with many attendees & presenters and have pushed the boundaries of my comfort zone to the extent that they have given up ….. and disappeared.
I think it’s safe to say that I’ve ‘found my voice’ and so much more as a Toastmaster and a member of City Women Speakers.
