Happy New Year - What's your resolution?

Start celebrating your accomplishments and reflect on those things you wish to improve. With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season almost behind you, it is time to look towards the New Year and start setting goals for 2014. Start your year off right by taking the first step towards mastering public speaking. Join us on January 9th to learn more about how Manhattan Toastmasters works and can help you in achieving your goals.

Our meetings are divided into three parts. The first is reserved for our member’s to present their prepared speeches. The subject for the speeches is bound to be something that will inspire or entertain you.  The second part of the meeting is table topics where guests and members give an impromptu speech. Impromptu speaking is an important skill that teaches you to think on your feet which everyone can use to get ahead in business or in life. Finally the meeting concludes with evaluations. This is why our members go to toastmasters. Evaluations tells speakers what they did good and what things they can improve on through constructive criticism. That is also a very important skill which you will get to learn.

It’s a new year and now it’s your turn to take that first step to improve your pubic speaking skills and to become that better leader. Don’t let your fear stop you, join others who have learned how to overcome their fear as well as those who are working on it. 

Are you still not sure? Start your new year by coming to a free and open to the public meeting of the Manhattan Toastmasters. Decide for yourself if it is right for you. But don’t wait too long to RSVP, space is limited.

      You're right Aditya, we learned that a 1-way ticket somewhere is not a bad idea at all, we expirienced how a fruit bowl can be the American dream if you grew up with nothing, we learned a roadmap to execute our goals effectively and we pondered how fun it would be to have dinner with Mr.Herzog and her daughter-haha. Great speeches tonight as always. For those that couldn't make it: come out next time- this is my battery boost of the week :)
