VP EDUCATION – Jacqui H. DTM SR2
My company sent me to an image consultant to get ready for senior promotion. She suggested I join Toastmasters to improve my confidence and speaking skills. That was in 2001 and I’ve never looked back. Now, instead of being terrified to speak, I get paid to speak. How cool is that?

TREASURER – David B.
Public speaking used to terrify me beyond words. But I knew I wanted to do it. I’m not sure exactly where my desire comes from, but I think it’s got something to do with the warm afterglow of having achieved a public speech, having stepped well and truly out of my comfort zone and survived – and having actually been quite pleased at what I had done. The great thing about Toastmasters is that it allows you to practice, and practice more, but without ever feeling like you’re (too far) out of your comfort zone!
