Getting comfortable speaking in front of an audience can be a critical skill to develop. This is true for entrepreneurs, and small businesses as well as individuals working in medium and large businesses. Being able to communicate with your audience effectively and comfortably can play a huge role in how well your message is received. Toastmasters is a peer group that helps individuals develop and enhance their skills in a friendly "learn by doing" workshop format. Toastmasters is a non-profit organization. Most local Toastmasters clubs welcome guests to their meetings, which is a great way to find a club that fits you best. Participating in Toastmasters is a great way to improve your public speaking and leadership skills as well as an excellent means for meeting with other professionals in your region.
Alert!: The Toastmasters TRG Philadelphia Club has disbanded. Toastmasters TRG members are encouraged to use their existing membership by finding a new local club to participate in. Please go to the Philadelphia Region page to help locate a new club that might be best suited for you.
