My Toastmasters Journey

I had heard about Toastmasters from Tony Robbins the American Life strategist. I joined Toastmasters in 2013, after deciding that I needed to conquer my fear of public speaking.  

Since I joined Toastmasters, and gained the confidence I needed, my career has advanced rapidly to the extent I have started my own business ‘Sub–Confidence’. I teach others how to harness their confidence in speaking, so the confidence levels are on default. It’s all in our minds! I’ve coached CEOs, School Teachers, Presenters and children.  I just love the atmosphere, the contribution and the value that Toastmasters provides. It’s an absolute life-changer. It has put me on a whole new level and I’ve met so many wonderful and amazing people!

Toastmasters is where I continue to practice and hone my skills. I think we sometimes forget and I’ve been reminded of this from the 2001 World Champion of Public Speaking Darren LaCroix in that,’ it’s not about being the best at Toastmasters, it’s about being the best out in the real world because that’s where your skills truly matter.
