Toastmasters rocks! Just yesterday, I won Best Speaker for my inspirational presentation, “Recognizing Naysayers and Pursuing your Dreams”. Toastmasters International is a communication and leadership organization with clubs around the world. While I’ve always loved public speaking, Toastmasters is helping to quiet my nerves and improve my content and delivery.
