There are several types of experience that always make me take notice… One is Toastmasters. Why Toastmasters? Because the communication, teamwork, leadership, and feedback skills that every member in every club learns are all-important in virtually any job. But probably the most important thing, for me, is the self-confidence that Toastmasters build along the way, and which affects every aspect of their lives.

Employers recognize Toastmasters’ value: More than 3,000 organizations, including the Walt Disney Company, The Coca-Cola Company, and Apple Computer, sponsor in-house Toastmasters clubs as communication training for employees.
