Never stop learning is a sure-fire way to keep mentally alert and engaged. To facilitate this, Toastmasters International has helped thousands of retired men and women maintain and enhance their cognitive skills through the art of public speaking.
It doesn’t matter what age you are; you need to convey your thoughts accurately verbally and on paper. Excellent communication skills come in handy when you are giving a presentation at your church or a wedding reception, among family and friends.
When we want to develop new skills we must have the time and space to work on enhancing these acquired attributes. Public speaking can be a frightening experience. Just having to walk to the front of the room can create shivers up and down one’s spine.
I became the president of a not for profit organization geared to stimulating the minds of the elderly. As the president of this organization, I spoke at a prestigious college on the first Saturday of each month. The first couple of months were terrifying; somehow, I got through it. I quickly realized that I didn’t have enough ideas I could use to develop different presentations each Saturday. I panicked! Fortunately, one of the club members I befriended, I felt comfortable enough to talk to her about my dilemma. She mentioned that there was a place that could help me with my situation. It was Toastmasters!
Toastmasters gave me the time, space and a safe empowering environment with other like-minded members that wanted me to succeed!
Through Toastmasters, I was able to speak the first Saturday of each month confidently for two years, discovering, developing and delivering empowering content on many topics! If Toastmasters was able to help me become a better presenter and storyteller, Toastmasters can help you too!
