. Since 1958, the club has been dedicated to helping people become better speakers and leaders.
“Royal City Toastmasters provides a supportive and positive environment where members have the opportunity to overcome their fear of public speaking and sharpen presentation skills,” says Sara Phillips, VP Public Relations for Royal City Toastmasters. “Other benefits include the opportunity to increase one’s confidence, build critical thinking skills and become an effective listener,” says Phillips.
Club members benefit from lessons from new and experienced members as well as guest speakers. Experienced member Rosalind Scantlebury has missed only two club meetings in twenty-two years, and provides a wealth of advice to new members. Former member Lloyd Longfield is now Member of Parliament for Guelph, and returned for a guest speaker appearance earlier in the year.
“Royal City Toastmasters not only is helping me advance my professional career by being a better, more confident speaker, it also gave me the confidence and skills to host a moderated panel of world-class celebrities in front of a paying audience this past summer”, says Phillips.
