I work as a Designer in the City, but am a resident of Fairfield, CT. I would like the opportunity to speak and meet with others in the area who share the same interest to improve speaking skills.

What is your main interest in joining a Toastmasters meeting?

I am interested in improving my public speaking skills. In the future, I would like to teach and think that this would be very helpful.

Is public speaking important for your work?

No, but I feel that I would like to build a second career as a teacher.

Does public speaking make you anxious? Nervous?

I feel very uncomfortable speaking before a group. They say public speaking is like exercising a muscle- it needs to be practiced on a regular basis to build confidence.

What Deborah Rogers is saying about this Meetup Group

As this is the beginning of a group, it is a great opportunity to get in while it is still small and practice in a less intimidating environment. Jim Alfieri has a lot of experience with Toastmasters and is extremely supportive and informative. An educational and entertaining evening, if nothing else.

    As an aside I will probably be selling a few of those, and other crystals, when I work the crystal table at Sage's next Open House on the 14th. I got mine at Talisman on Rt 25 in Monroe. Laura (who owns Talisman) just opened a second location at Captain's Cove in Bridgeport, which is probably more convenient to you, maybe? Not sure she has any more Indian Turquoise ones but I can ask about their availability.

    Looking forward to Monday! See you then!

    Hi Deborah: have to break this up into a couple of greetings, so please don't think me a stalker..

    Very cool about the Qi Gong, been looking for a group to explore that.. found one here on Meetup, alas in Wallingford; I think gas prices will keep me within a slightly smaller radius for the time being.

    Jane explains the Merkaba here:­­

    Didn't get your initial message re pendulums.. Sage is selling several of the ones we used.

    Hi Deborah: rather late in the game for this, maybe, and I don't know whether you were interested in just the stone or the concept, but my Reiki teacher is starting a new series of Merkaba workshops tomorrow night in Stratford and I wondered whether you might be interested.

    Hoping you've been well —

    Hi Deborah: it's a merkaba stone, bought from my Reiki master. I don't remember what I paid.. it wasn't expensive. Jane has merkaba stones crafted from other gemstones too.

    Jane schedules meetups taking people through various stages to activate their merkaba fields. Merkaba info is out there on the web but I can't recall where; Google might help..

    Good seeing you last night.. hope all is well?

    Hi Deborah, it was so nice to receive your note. I'm planning on being at the next meeting. My son left for school and there was more to do then I had anticipated. I'm looking forward to being in the group and seeing you.
    I hope you've been well.

    Hi Deborah,
    Thank you so much for faxing me the information about how to organize a speech. I've found it so helpful and really appreciate you thinking of me and faxing it along. That was so nice. Have a good evening and I hope to see you at the next meeting.

    Hi Deborah,
    I'm so disappointed that I won't be able to join you this Wednesday. Especially since i will be giving a presentation on June 3rd. I'm wondering if there is any way to receive the handout you picked up for me. Do you have a fax? If so, my fax number is [masked].
