Message from Area 24 Director

I first Joined Toastmasters International in March 2014 to improve my communication skills. My Employer made the suggestion to join on more than one occasion then one evening I met a Toastmaster who invited me to a meeting. Little did I know about Toastmasters International or how they could guide me to become a better Communicator or Leader. It has been 3 years since that first visit and in that time I have met supportive people who are as interested in my growth as a Communicator and Leader as they are in their own growth. If I could summarize my journey it would be this, you get out of Toastmasters what you put into Toastmasters. The added benefit of enriching your circle of friends and acquaintances is priceless. My Toastmasters journey started in 2014, when will yours start?

Why not start by viewing some of our Clubs activities here.
