  • Toastmasters International

    Did you dread book reports in school or presentations in college?  Does the thought of speaking in front of a group of people make your knees go weak and your mouth dry?  Would you rather go head to head with a rattlesnake than give a speech? If so, you aren’t alone!  Public speaking is usually ranked as one of the top ten things people fear the most.    Toastmasters can help! Toastmasters International:  http://www.toastmasters.org/  is an organization dedicated to improving public speaking and leadership skills by providing a friendly, supportive environment with proven programs.   For more information:
