"I joined Toastmasters as previously I was very uncomfortable with speaking publicly. Since joining Harbord Diggers Toastmasters, I have overcome this fear and now welcome and look forward to public speaking. I enjoy the friendly and supportive culture at the club, with the regular opportunities to learn skills such as delivering presentations, chairing meetings, evaluating and providing feedback to help other members achieve their potential, being aware of how to communicate to a diverse audience- etc, the list is extensive. Practising isolating all the different skills has really helped to integrate these into my professional and personal life"

“I joined toastmasters as I felt I needed to improve on my public speaking and presentation skills as a lot of times I felt due to inexperience I got nervous beforehand which often led me to lose out on sales due to the nervousness. I spoke to few people and asked them for guidance and they all recommended me to join local toastmasters Club. Tried a couple and just felt at home at Diggers Club due to the experience and legacy that the club has along with awesome mentors!"

"I was presenting at work, but always had some nerves and never felt completely in control. Joining Toastmasters opened me up to a whole new toolkit of techniques and tools that I could bring to my work presentations. It also helped me build my confidence in social situations where I was having to engage in small-talk, not something that came easily to me! Finally, by taking on leadership roles on our club's executive team - I learnt how to manage people and do so in a constructive manner.”
