What we're about
The mission of the Mohawk Trail Toastmasters club is to provide an accessible, mutually supportive and positive learning environment for residents of western Massachusetts in which every individual member has the opportunity to develop oral communication and leadership skills.
Since 1924, Toastmasters International (http://www.toastmasters.org/) has been recognized as the leading organization dedicated to communication and leadership skill development. Through its worldwide network of clubs, each week Toastmasters helps more than a quarter million men and women of every ethnicity, education level and profession build their competence in communication so they can gain the confidence to lead others.
Mohawk Trail Toastmasters is a place where you can develop and grow - both personally and professionally. You join a community of learners, and in Toastmasters meetings we learn by doing. Whether you're an executive or a stay-at-home parent, a college student or a retiree, you will improve yourself; building skills to express yourself in a variety of situations. You'll open up a world of new possibilities: giving better work presentations; leading meetings - and participating in them - more confidently; speaking more smoothly off the cuff; even handling one-on-one interactions with family, friends and colleagues more positively.
We meet in Greenfield, MA.
