Hi fellow extremely shy members,
Want to conquer your fear of doing presentations and/or meeting new people for the first time? Well, have I got a fun solution for you!
If you are looking for something fun and educational on the last Thursday night of this month, look no further than MetroSpeakers Toastmasters at Metrotown mall!
Toastmasters International is a non-profit organization that has clubs worldwide that helps everyday people like us, conquer our fears of public speaking as well as develop leadership skills.
MetroSpeakers is one out of many clubs that will give you a taste of what Toastmasters has to offer through its signature weekly meetings.
As a member of this club and host of this particular club meeting on June 27th, I decide to invite all of you to check out my club and be prepared to be inspired and entertained by well crafted (and unexpectedly exciting) speeches by some of our members. You will also get a guaranteed opportunity to practice your public speaking skills in this meeting!
After the club meeting, some of us (members and guests like yourself) will head down to the club's usual watering hole: the Firefighter's Club. There you can enjoy some food and drinks while getting the opportunity to socialize with our members and other guests.
I have set a meet up time of 6:45 pm, which is when the club meeting room will open its doors and start welcoming guests. The meeting itself begins at 7:00 pm sharp! Please make your best attempt to come in on time so that you don't disrupt the meeting by coming in late!
The club meets inside the community room on the 4th floor (Office Galleria) of Metrotown. This floor can be best accessed by elevators at the Grand Court (see mall map link):
Here's the club website and Facebook group page for more details on how to get to the club meeting location and more info on the club itself:
I will meet you all at the club's meeting room and try my best to greet everyone one of you before I start the meeting. Otherwise, I will get around to chatting with you during the club meeting break or at Firefighter's.
The meeting is free to attend with limited bottled water provided AND everyone who attended the meeting will be treated by the club with wings, nachos and beer!!! If you plan on ordering anything else (other drinks, apps or mains), you will be responsible for your own orders.
Feel free to bring in additional guests with you to this event, although it would be nice if you could indicate that when you RVSP.
If you would like my contact number or have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me here on MeetUp.
