Teaching Toastmaster

Michael Sheridan, ACB/CL

Lakeside Toastmasters

Lewisville, Texas

I taught college and graduate classes for years. Wasn’t  until Toastmasters that I found out how “wordy” I was! Let’s not even talk about “uhs” and “ahs.”

I learned to focus my message, understand my audience and deliver my message with clarity and conviction.

Gift getter: Through Speech Contests, I’ve learned from very gifted speakers who, as true Toastmasters, are very willing to provide coaching and suggestions to help me improve my performance.

“What I’ve learned is a well managed club creates a powerful learning environment for everyone.”
