Public Speaking Is No Longer a 'Soft Skill.' It's Your Key to Success in Any Field

Public speaking isn't a "soft skill" anymore. Warren Buffett says the fastest way to double your value is to learn to communicate better both verbally and in writing! Toastmasters can help!

Public Speaking Is No Longer a 'Soft Skill.' It's Your Key to Success in Any Field Great persuaders have a competitive edge in the age of ideas.

Here is another one of our members using what he learned from TMs to do a video presentation for his business! Way to go McKee!


One of our members Chris giving a presentation to a room full of entrepreneurs in North Carolina. Chris recently said in one of our meetings "I get a lot of compliments on my presentations when I speak publicly. I always give credit to my many years in Toastmasters!" Come see a meeting for FREE! And see if Toastmasters can help you.


Timing in Toastmasters is important! Have you ever sat in a presentation that ran way too long. Learn how to time your speeches in Toastmasters!


Have you ever thought about conquering your fear of public speaking? Join us Thursday mornings! Practice makes perfect!


We had another great meeting this morning. Two speeches including one on increasing customer satisfaction by Chris and how you can stop bullying by Teri. But my favorite part was a Table Topic response from one of our newest members, Claire. She asked how does her garden grow? She responded with care and planning and telling her husband exactly where to dig! Come join us next week for more fun and laughs while we improve our public speaking and leadership skills.


Hey everyone, I am now officially a DTM. Here's my picture on .

Last week, we did the Word Association Game. We picked four random words from a hat and had to speak for 1 minute on those four word! Jim, started laughing while speaking! Join us tomorrow at 6:45 am and see what we'll do then!
