OUR VISION is to promote positive growth and communication excellence in a relaxed, organized and supportive environment.
We lived in a fast-paced society where everything is done in a rush, rush manner. A tough businessman would not listen long so will your kids, as they rather you-tube or hang on the internet or their phone. Time constraint is a concern when it comes to communications
I have seen careers rise and fall on the spoken word.
The employee who cant communicate effectively does not get a raise. The boss cant get his points across losses the cooperation of his employees. The salesman who cant stop talking does not make the sale. The politician who says too little, too long or not get his point across does not get elected.
Well, the good news is being able to communicate effectively, persuasively and concisely can be learned through OUR Speaking club or our Speech workshop.
One of the Best way to prepare yourself for any number of audiences is through the practice in a safe, supportive and nourishing environment which our club offers.

Enclosed, I would like to share with you my Toastmaster Journey...
My Impossible Dream By DTM CINDY, June 2010
I have a dream, a millionaire Dream. I dreamt to be rich and I dreamt to be free! I have a dream, a Toastmaster dream. I dreamt to be heard and I dreamt to be seen!
I wanted to learn and to communicate I wanted to lead and to motivate I wanted to inspire and to share my TM dream; my impossible dream!
I started as a shaker Trembling my way to be a speaker I said to myself, can’t you a thinker? What are you thinking to be a speaker? (lol)
Yet speaking gave me confidence. Now I am proud to be a competent communicator! Leadership is another challenge As communication is only part of the equation
So I stepped up as an officer Only wanted to learn, only wanted to lead To motivate, to spire and to share my TM dream
Being Area Governor gave me courage To learn, to lead and to communicate An opportunity to shape and to crystallize my impossible dream.
I started ONLY as ESL Wanting to learn and to be confident TM as non-profit organization Since 1924 has helped thousands.
We all want to achieve goals To be great communicators and great leaders To be like Obama and Peter (legge) TM charge pennies and is known with endless possibilities.
ThIS Year, I had stepped up to SERVE the E division. For especially Richmond and for my ESL students They reminded me of my dreams To grow and to be a better person .
Public speaking is a CAN learn skill at your own pace, at your own will and wish. Not everyone is like me, energetic like a bee. Not everyone is like you as unique as you can be. In fact, no one is like everyone as beautiful a human as one can be.
Come learn at your own pace Come grow at your own wish Come lead your own dream, your impossible dream.
My dream is to motive My dream is to inspire My dream is to share and to encourage your goals and also your dreams.
Oh YES, I see my light at RED And I don’t want to be clapped. So I thank you to you, my dear audience For listening to my dream, my impossible dream!
