In the last 2 years, Michael Pope has delivered over thirty 45 minute presentations as well as over a dozen full-day workshops. “I can still recall my first speech. My hands were shaking, my mouth was dry and I thought for sure that the people on the front row could see butterflies jumping out of my shirt. Even though I was nervous giving my first speech I was excited because I knew that it was part of the process of me learning how to be a more confident presenter.”
A Toastmasters club is a “learn-by-doing” workshop in which men and women hone their skills in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere. A typical club has 20 to 40 members, who meet weekly or biweekly to learn and practice presentation techniques. The average club meeting lasts approximately one hour.
