Readers, I have three interests: reading, writing, and speaking. Found this very interesting article titled Five Reasons Why Bloggers Should Join Toastmasters. The purpose of the article is to persuade you to join this international public speaking club. Look at number 4, your communication skills learned at Toastmasters plus your expertise on a particular subject can put you on the Professional presenter track.
If you are in Waycross or its environs, the Okefenokee Toastmasters Club meets at Quality Inn every Wednesday at 7:00am. August 20th there will be a Toastmasters Humorous Speech and a Speech Evaluation contest at First Christian Church Fellowship Hall at 10:00am, McDonald Street in Waycross. Free to the public.
