“Toastmasters is an exciting organization geared at helping people overcome their fear of public speaking and advance their leadership skills.” beams club president Latisha Bell. ” In the words of our founder, Ralph Smedley, ‘Ours is the only organization I know dedicated to the individual, we work together to bring out the best in each of us and then we apply these skills to help others.’ If you have a desire to speak more, whether on your job, in your community or in any environment, this is where you can learn how to put your best self forward.”

People join Toastmasters for various reasons.  Becoming a member  provides a great opportunity to hone speaking skills, overcome fear of public speaking, prepare for job interviews, and develop leadership skills in a supportive and self-paced environment.  Toastmasters provides the more seasoned speaker with opportunities to develop special capabilities, to compete on the regional, state and national level, and to participate in the speaker’s bureau.

New Bern Toastmasters Club meets every Monday night at 6:30 p.m. at Keller Williams Realty, 1320 McCarthy Blvd, in New Bern.  Guests are always welcome.
