I have been a member of Toastmasters for almost 8 years and was one of the best decisions I made as it has drastically improved my communication and leadership skills in ways, I never thought possible. Before joining Toastmasters, giving presentations was a nerve-wracking experience that I tried to avoid. But now, I really enjoy it. When I first joined Toastmasters, public speaking was intimidating and often overwhelming. I focused too much on the technical aspects of presentation, such as making sure every word was perfect and my slides were exactly right. This mean I wasn’t connecting with my audience or enjoying the process. With Toastmasters I learned to be confident communicator who can think on the spot and make an impact on any audience. Not only have I learned the techniques of public speaking – such as posture, vocal variety and eye contact but I also learned how to communicate with passion and focus on my message rather than being worried about being perfect.

 What people are saying about Maresme Toastmasters
When I was 16, the only thing to do in small town Canada was chess club, hockey and watch ‘Saved by the bell’— and- Youth Leadership Program from Toastmasters. Toastmasters was the best thing to happen to me. Toastmasters offered me mentoring in public speaking and as I got better and more engaging, I started offering workshops virtually to hundreds of Toastmasters and training my facilitator skills with European Trainers Network online club. I went from losing at club contests, going over time at the larger contests- to last year winning top female speaker in Western Europe. Through the feedback of 100s of colleagues, in 30 clubs I have created my Team Training business as a Motivational Humorist who helps introverted women interrupt so their ideas get heard and they feel thrive in happy relationships. This year, I was awarded Top Evaluator and Inspiring speech in Catalunya. May is the month for conferences around the world and I get to give workshops, learn and dance with my international friends in Europe.. It’s all because of Toastmasters. Thank you My life without you would be boring.

8 years ago, I walked into my first Toastmaster Club meeting in Barcelona. I was really keen on learning how to structure a great speech. I'd had 30 years of stage experience as a clown, but I wanted to be able to communicate to a wider audience all the things that made me passionate about my art. And it seemed to me that writing inspiring speeches was the first step. So that was my motivation. However, by the end of that first meeting, I was absolutely convinced that joining Toastmasters was going to be transformative. What I didn't realise at the time was just how much it would change my life. Because 8 years later, I am now a keynote speaker on confidence and self-enhancing humor, I'm teaching public speaking at IESE Business school and I am also the co-founder of PSAS, an association that helps professional public speakers grow their businesses. However, above and beyond the professional skills I have learnt is the Toastmaster community of amazing people. People who have now become close friends and are a constant inspiration to grow as a human being, public speaker and leader. So, I didn't just learnt how to structure a great speech in Toastmasters. I have been given so, so much more!

Being a member of a Toastmasters club is a very powerful complementary training for any type of job, for me in particular, attending my club sessions regularly has helped me to better communicate my ideas and express myself in a more concise and correct way with my colleagues and clients.
It has also helped me to be more fluent when speaking in front of large groups of people. And while I think the nerves of facing a large audience will probably never completely go away, there's always an adrenaline reward when you're done. For me it's like trying to surf (which I've done very little), even if it's hard for you to get on the wave, the experience is incomparable.
