Trumbull, CT: Monroe-Trumbull TM, online meeting

St. Stephen Church

We’ve been around since 2003 and come from all walks of life but one thing we have in common: we want to get better at speaking in front of a group. But we also want to have fun doing it – and we do – because we follow the Toastmasters model of learning-by-doing. Every meeting you’ll hear a prepared speech or two plus some fun exercises where we test ourselves with off-the-cuff speaking. Over time your confidence will grow in our mutually supportive atmosphere as you develop leadership skills and become better at verbal and written communication. We’d love to have you come by for a visit and see what we’re all about!

We gather for our “meet and greet” set-up at 11:45 AM. The meeting and the educational program start at 12:00 PM (noon) sharp and adjourns at 1:00 PM on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month. The club is open to all interested parties. Free admission. No ticket required.
