Michigan Avenue Toastmaster (MAT) members learn by giving speeches in a group setting and working with others in a supportive environment. A typical MAT meeting is made up of 25 to 40 members who meet once a week. Each meeting gives everyone an opportunity to practice and learn how to get over your fear of public speaking and hone your public speaking skills.
Upon joining Michigan Avenue Toastmasters, each new member receives a variety of manuals and resources on speaking. They also are assigned a mentor who will help them construct their speech. Our speakers are inspirational and motivating.
In addition, our club is not only educational but very social consisting of professionals that live or work in the downtown area. We go out after every meeting to socialize with our guest and members. We also have quite a few events to help our members network and connect. I personally have made some amazing friendships through this club.
COME CHECK IT OUT FOR YOURSELF! WE OFFER TWO FREE MEETINGS. WE MEET AT THE DRAKE HOTEL, 140 EAST WALTON, IN THE MICHIGAN ROOM, EVERY TUESDAY STARTING AT 6:30PM SHARP. AFTER OUR MEETINGS WE GO OUT FOR DRINKS, FOOD AND SOCIALIZING. HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
