He has also worked extensively as an actor in theatre and has also played numerous roles in feature films and on television shows in Europe, Canada, and the United States.

“Danforth Pape Toastmasters Club provides a supportive and positive environment where members have the opportunity to develop their communication and leadership skills,” says Emanuel Petrescu, former VP of PR for Toastmasters-Danforth Pape. “
After hearing from Costin Manu members and guests will enjoy a regular Toastmasters meeting that will include prepared speeches, Table Topics™ (impromptu speeches) and evaluations.
Club President Vanessa Rich, who has served in various club positions, will be the Table Topics master. “Table Topics are one of my favourite parts of the meeting,” says Sumedha Kulkarni, club member. “This is where guests and members are randomly selected to speak for one to two minutes. It helps you think and speak clearly on your feet.” Other speakers include Michelle Spear, DTM, VP of Education and Club’s Past President.
