Better Communication Begins With Better Listening

Toastmasters has strengthened my communication skills both in and out of work.

I have become a more effective leader due to increasing confidence and honing “off-the-cuff” thinking gained by serving Toastmasters in various roles.

Networking goldmine: Toastmasters has been a great place to meet folks inside and outside of work. I’ve been exposed to various communication and leadership styles—ones I might not have been exposed to at work.

“I have become a better communicator because I have learned to actively listen to others. In return, I have gained a better understanding of what is being said and am able to more effectively respond.”
