Classic City Toastmasters began in 1979 to meet the enthusiasm Athens, GA has had for the Toastmasters program. We regularly meet to practice our skills in public speaking and leading, and we welcome all adults interested in dropping by to join our audience (whether you want to become a member or not). This meetup group is to help network among our members, guests, and fans. But what is Toastmasters? It's a self-paced educational program for people trying to overcome a deathly fear of public speaking, improve communication skills, or learning to lead. It's practicing among friends improving answering impromptu questions, network your small business better, craft a more engaging story, make better presentations, and get constructive feedback from friends. Toastmasters members learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback — and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership. And we welcome everyone interested to drop in and watch the fun.
