Toastmasters has not only helped me to be a better communicator. It has helped me to, quite simply, be better. Self-confidence, ability to connect with people, effectiveness in conveying a message, these qualities are hard to overstate in any professional or personal context. I am a glad member of Berlaymont Toastmaster, a fun place where so many interesting people gather.
The Berlaymont club helped me be more clear and effective in my communication both in English and in French. In particular, now when I go for job intereviews I feel more at ease responding to questions for which I haven’t prepared.
Toastmasters is simply the cheapest and most efficient way to improve your public speaking skills. You get a ton of resources from the toastmasters international website and the toastmasters community has a lot of events. The location and people at Berlaymont are very nice and interesting.
I’ve had the opportunity to meet amazing people at the Berlaymont club. It was a very supportive environment. I’d recommend it to anyone willing to improve their public speaking while having a good time.
Toastmasters has enabled me to develop professionally and personally as a leader. What started as an simple goal became transformative experience for that changed the way I approach myself, my career, my family, my friends and my life. I feel blessed for all the people I met at the Berlaymont club.
When I think of what I wanted when starting at the Berlaymont and what I got, I don’t think I would have imagined where I am right now. I can say that Toastmasters is the safest place to develop public speaking skills and so much more.
