How long have you been a member of the Club?
Four years.

What attracted you to joining The Newmarket Toastmasters?
Learning how to communicate better was my attraction to Toastmasters.

Do you find that attending and participating in the meetings benefits you in your profession? How?
The benefits to Toastmasters is feeling more comfortable with public speaking and speaking well. Attending and participating in the meetings really helps with this objective.

Would you encourage others to join Toastmasters and why?
Yes, I would encourage others to join. Toastmasters helps people learn to listen and speak well. It’s not only for people who do a lot of presentations or public speaking but it helps with everyday communication with family, friends and co-workers. Communication is very important in learning to work and live with others.

What was your favourite meeting to date?
My favourite meetings are when we have a full room and everyone has a chance to speak. It’s a great way to learn about our members.

If you could tell me one thing about TNT that you love, what would it be?
TNT is a group that is welcoming, friendly and a lot of fun. I really enjoy Table Topics® because it’s the best way to practice impromptu speaking.

What is your favourite role in the weekly meetings and why?
Being the Toastmaster and Table Topics® Master is interesting for different reasons. Being the Toastmaster help you lead a meeting, keep everything on time and provide comments. The Table Topics® Master lets you be creative in designing the Table Topics® for the meeting.

Any other comments?
People should attend a meeting at lease once so that they can get an idea about Toastmasters is all about!
