WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY

warm, supportive, and

"safe" environment

Communication is a powerful skill that can assist you in all aspects of your life. There are some people that just seem to be able to get up and speak eloquently without showing any fear or nervousness. Well, I wasn’t one of them! And that is the reason I decided to join Trojan Toastmasters Club. It was the first step towards overcoming my great fear and developing my confidence in public speaking. The all empowering realization that I wasn’t alone, made such a huge difference in my attitude and confidence towards getting up there and communicating! It wasn’t easy, I had to step out of my comfort zone and confront my fears. I set my own pace and have gone from strength to strength. The warm, supportive, and "safe" environment of the club has also played a major role in my development over the past three years. I would certainly recommend this to my friends, family, and colleagues, should they wish to improve on their communication skills.  It can change lives!

my stage fright was gone

I joined Trojan Speakers to get over my stage fright. At work, I was the last person to volunteer to do any presentation. Even in a company meeting, I always dreaded the moment when it came to my turn to speak. Then a friend recommended me, Toastmasters.  When I went to my first meeting, I found the members to be very friendly and relaxed. They were very supportive. I went there expecting I will be the only novice out there. But there were quite a few like me. So I felt a sense of belonging right from the start.  I can still remember the day I gave my first ever prepared speech - the nervousness I felt before the speech and the feeling of achievement I felt after the speech. The audience was very supportive. I was hooked in. I took every opportunity to be on the stage. A few months later, my stage fright was gone.  Last year I delivered my 10th prepared speech and got my Competent Communicator award. I am so proud of my achievement. I am a much more confident speaker now, even my self-confidence has rocketed. I would recommend Toastmasters to anyone interested in improving their communication skills.
