The Toastmaster's Experience
Competent Communications Skills Are Vital If You Want To Be Truly Professional
Corporate leaders say the ability to communicate well orally is one of the most important skills their recruiters look for in job candidates. Businesses want people who express themselves clearly and confidently, and are persuasive and comfortable communicating with a wide range of people, from top executives to assembly-line workers.
Most schools and universities don't offer public speaking training. Toastmaster's does. In Toastmaster's you'll learn how to formulate, express, and sell your ideas and yourself with poise and confidence.
More than four million people will confirm that the Toastmasters Program works, but it works only when you prepare carefully, actively participate, and speak as often as possible. Apply yourself, and you will experience many benefits in both your professional and personal life.
Part of the leadership program within Toastmasters involves joining a club's executive committee. Club officers have many opportunities to participate in the governance of Toastmasters International, even outside the club. As a club officer, you have the opportunity to interact with district leaders, participate in area and district council meetings, elect district and international leaders and vote on important governance issues at the Annual Business Meeting.
The executive committee of a Toastmasters club consists of all eight club officers. The club president serves as the executive committee chair. Working as a team, the executive committee must manage all business and administrative affairs of the club.
