Rancho Santa Fe Toastmasters has resumed its fall and winter schedule each Tuesday from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. The group meets at the Rancho Santa Fe Community Center in a private meeting room on the first floor.
If you have been thinking about joining Toastmasters, please come to a meeting to see how much fun they have. Everyone is there to help each other become competent speakers and to take the fear out of standing up in front of a group or an audience.
Based on recent research, the overwhelming reason people join Toastmasters is to improve speaking skills (71 percent); to improve interpersonal communication (42 percent); and to improve self-esteem (35 percent). You’ll also be happy to know this is not a lost art…the club also has younger members! As a matter of fact, 40 percent of the national members are under 35. (It is a fact that email and texting cannot make emotion ring true.)
The fall and winter agenda will be chock full of special events, contests, a wine tasting party and more; always with
funas the main ingredient. Stop by any Tuesday evening at 5:30 p.m. to join in. You’ll see why Toastmasters has been around for so many years.
