Toastmasters

July 8, 2010

 Do you get sweaty palms and cotton mouth just thinking about public speaking? Are you hesitant to speak in front of large groups of people? Do you wish you had more confidence in your public speaking abilities? Would you like a supportive group to help you practice and/or improve your public speaking? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you are probably not alone. Studies have shown the most common fear people admit to having  is the fear of  public speaking, which is known as glossophobia in science language. The good news is…

 Clear Lake Area Chamber of Commerce Toastmasters can help.

Join us at Toastmasters.

 CLACC Toastmasters meets every Friday from 8 – 9 a.m. in the My Flooring America Boardroom in the Chamber office.

Members take turns giving and listening to speeches each week while sharing words of encouragement along the way.  CLACC Toastmasters is a President’s Distinguished Club, which is the highest honor that can be awarded to a club, so we know our stuff. In this safe environment, members gain confidence in their speaking abilities and themselves. Following the Toastmasters handbook, members also enhance their speech writing  skills and learn all kinds of cool tips that make speech writing and speaking easier and even fun.

  To learn more about  CLACC Toastmasters, come sit in on a meeting. The third Friday of every month is designated as Visitors’ Day, but you don’t have to wait until then if you want to jump right in. We’re always glad to welcome new members!

 For even more information, you may contact the 2010-2011 CLACC Toastmasters President, Gloria Greene, the Marketing Manager
for Dr. Garcia, Jr. Plastic Surgery Arts Center & NeoGenesis Wellness Center and Medical Spa at gloriagreenemarketing@gmail.com

 Or feel free to call the Chamber office or e-mail febe@clearlakearea.com and we will be glad to get you set up.

 Don’t let your fear of public speaking put a damper on your career or your life. Everyone is capable of becoming a good speaker and CLACC Toastmasters can help you reach this goal. Check out some information on the first 10 Toastmasters speeches to really see what we mean.

 See you at the podium!
