Something in me that I didn’t know I had!

Sean during a speech on the beachHow have you benefitted from Toastmasters.?

This was a question asked at a recent meeting? My mind was racing, I replied that   could talk for hours on the benefits of Toastmasters, in short it was the catalyst for a series  of events representing more than simply Public speaking 

My membership has inspired, encouraged, and nurtured something inside me I didn’t know I had. If, before I joined, you had told me I would do any of following I would never have believed you!

  • Speak on the radio to help promote the club
  • Write a blog post
  • Become the club’s President for a year and learn the importance of this community that’s changed me forever.
  • Enter and win a speaking competition (yes there are such things!).
  • Speak to a crowd, including the Mayor, at Speech on the Beach.
  • Meet interesting, fun, inspiring people from all walks of life and made countless friends. 
  • Chair committee meetings via zoom.
  • Feel confident speaking to groups of people.
  • Become a mentor.

I look back at all the connections and experiences and I am better person for everyone one of them, so I’ll always be grateful to be a member of Worthing speakers club.

Now if you were asking the same question of a different member, you would get a different set of answers and that’s wonderful.

Where this club will take me next is an unfolding adventure, but where will it take you?
