Description

Speaking Professionally Toastmasters is an open Toastmasters club comprised of members serious about building a speaking business and getting paid to speak. Our weekly meetings kick off with an educational speaking tip. That tip is the theme, or focus, of the meeting and the speakers for that day are demonstrating and practicing how they integrate that speaking tip in their speech segment. Speakers present a 5-10 minute speech. Following each speaker, members provide invaluable group feedback constructive to the speaker. Guests are welcome for one meeting and RSVP required.
