« Attending an EMBA Toastmaster meeting is like going to a family event. At every meeting, here are the familiar faces and every once in a while, you encounter new ones and hear new stories.
Attending meetings, giving presentations, pitch ideas and communicating with our friends, colleagues and family are all part of normal daily activities. At some point, it becomes part of the daily noise. But the conversations people remember are the ones with a great story behind it. Toastmasters is about learning to hone the art of storytelling.
I’ve been a member since 2019. I’ve learned to build deeper connections with the audience through storytelling and I’ve discovered the communication styles that work best for me. Toastmaster also prepared me to command the room for any impromptu speeches and that’s a skillset pretty handy to have.
The Club is also a safe zone when you want to rehearse for that next big speech. We are among alumni and friends, to help you be the best version of yourself. And most importantly, it’s fun! »
