Niagara College’s in-house Toastmasters Club, chartered in 2007, is joining nine other clubs in the Niagara region to hold a joint open house on Wednesday, August 24. Guests can find out more about how the Toastmasters learning program works, listen to a variety of speakers, have the opportunity to chat with members from a variety of clubs and perhaps try their hand at some fun impromptu speaking. Refreshments and door prizes will be offered.
Toastmasters is a self-paced, experiential learning program that allows members to learn basic skills and then choose several different paths to develop advanced skills that will help them most in their career. Toastmasters meetings offer a safe environment in which to practice skill-building among peers and be evaluated supportively to improve.
The free, open-to-the-public event takes place on, August 24, from 6:45 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Regional Headquarters, room CE101, 1815 Sir Isaac Brock Way, Thorold.
