This is the third in a series of River Speakers Profile Posts answering the question, “Can you name two skills that Toastmasters helped you enhance, discover, or strengthen — and how that helped you in your professional life?” We’re talking with Toastmaster Pam Bostic:
River Speakers Toastmasters Club has been an amazing networking opportunity for both my professional and personal life. I’ve had the honor to attend a Professional Development seminar with a focus on Interviewing at a fellow Toastmaster’s place of work. I’ve also learned of a recurring group meditation event with the potential to calm the mind and strengthen character.
Toastmasters has taught me to find the positivity in every topic. This will be an invaluable skill for interviewing and relationship/network building.
River Speakers Toastmasters has made Thursday my favorite day of the week (move over Friday!)
This is the second in a series of River Speakers Profile Posts answering the question, “Can you name two skills that Toastmasters helped you enhance, discover, or strengthen — and how that helped you in your professional life?” We’re talking with Toastmaster James Pendergrass CC:
Listening: I’m a better listener now than I was before joining Toastmasters, which I didn’t expect. I find that I’m more approachable, better understand how to ask the pertinent questions, and know how to give important feedback to people when asked.
Confidence to communicate effectively: It’s also helped me grow confidence as a person and being able to convey my thoughts so much better than before. Suffering from anxiety has always made it challenging to communicate my thoughts and feelings. However, Toastmasters has given me the ability to channel my thoughts and feelings into concise words in ways that weren’t possible before.
Our Jan. 26, 2017 meeting will take place in a different location. (Our gracious hosts at NNU need the room for other purposes during this time period.)
LAST UPDATE: We need to meet in 5CR4. For those of our members, and any guests, who don’t work in Plaza IV (800 E Park Blvd.) of the complex, Sherry will be at the 1st floor security desk to escort you up!
If you’re inside the complex: go east (away from Broadway) all the way down the hall to the last security desk in Plaza IV and keep going to the conference room (1CR5) at the end of that hall.
If you’re outside the complex: 800 E Park Blvd. is the last building in the complex — the 7-story one at the east end. Enter and sign in at the security desk. Ask the guard to direct you to 1CR5, down the hall behind his station.
