What's new in our Division:
As part of District 86's tenth anniversary, Division T will be presenting a few complimentary workshops and a demo meeting to thank the surrounding area and businesses for their ongoing support. Stop by and see what makes Toastmasters International one of the world's oldest, largest and most successful training organizations. Come and see why over half the Fortune 500 countries including Google, Coca-cola, Boeing, Amazon, and Verizon support Toastmasters within their companies and view the program that has helped members such as Tim Allen, Peter Coors, Nancy Brinker, Debbie Fields Rose, Walter Schirra and James Brady go on to success.
In addition to sampling how attending a Toastmaster meeting can improve your communication and leadership skill while having fun, we will present 2 workshops on skills everyone and every business can use - How to run effective meetings and Resolving Conflicts. These are just 2 of the many training sessions we offer.
Please come by for a hour or the whole afternoon to learn about something that can help you achieve your goals no matter what they are.
