CSA Crusaders Toastmasters

Online event

In Toastmasters, members learn leadership skills by organizing and conducting meetings and completing projects. The projects address skills such as listening, planning, motivating, and team building and give members the opportunity to practice them.

You will still find a lot of value at Toastmasters though, like many other highly accomplished communicators find value in it. Not to learn the basics quickly, but rather to practice and fine-tune your skills. Toastmasters, after all, is an ideal lab with a very supportive audience.
