A couple weeks ago, I had the privilege of attending my local district Toastmasters Conference. It was a great learning and networking experience. My favorite part of the day was the session led by champion speaker Darren LaCroix, which gave me additional insights about speaking that I could never have learned at my regular club meeting.

If you take a stroll around Coca-Cola headquarters in Atlanta and peek into people’s offices, you’ll notice that some of the walls are festooned with silver-embossed blue ribbons. Charles Miller, for one, has more than 20 of them, along with several other awards, all from Toastmasters International.

      What our Toastmasters Say

      "Every year, Thirdware hires a fresh batch of graduates from engineering colleges across India. Most of the graduates, though technically competent, need coaching on improving their presentation and communication skills. Through the Toastmasters initiative at Thirdware, we have seen individuals blossom to become better communicators and team players. The forum has also developed the leadership initiative in individuals to take on more responsibilities within and outside the organisation. I think every organisation should have an in-house Toastmasters club as it helps build an atmosphere of team spirit across teams, while developing every individuals leadership and communication skills."
