I have been part of this amazing organization for the past 16 years. And I can attribute this organization for honing and sharpening my skills where communication, leadership, presentation, organization & public relations is concerned. I especially loved the competitions conducted by Toastmasters in my local club, area, division and district zones. So now the question is - what in the world is Toastmasters?
Toastmasters International is a nonprofit educational organization that operates with clubs or chapters worldwide with one singular purpose. It is for helping members improve their communication and leadership skills. This movement was started by Ralph C. Smedley on October 22, 1924,at the YMCA in Santa Ana, California, United States. This would be end up being the 1st ever meeting and the 1st ever club. And from this millions of people around the world would be served through its movement. Today there are over 350,000 members worldwide in 142 countries.
