What we're about
Studies have shown public speaking as the most common fear, even more than the fear of dying. This has also been shown to have a negative impact on education, wages, and promotion. Toastmasters has been helping people overcome their fear to become great speakers and leaders for almost 100 years.
Our local club provide a safe, supportive environment to practice and improve at public speaking. By joining this meetup you get access to Gettin' Toasty Club #147, meeting Mondays from 7PM to 9PM in the Sherman Oaks Galleria's Community Room, near The Cheesecake Factory, right next to the Paul Mitchell School. Guests are free to attend either meeting as many times as they want, and can become a club member once they're ready to focus more on prepared speeches.
Whether you have a fear of public speaking or just want to become a better speaker, Toastmasters will give you the tools and practice you need for success.
Top 5 reasons to attend:
1) Make new friends
2) Practice delivering prepared and impromptu speeches, when comfortable
3) Get constructive feedback from an experienced speaker for prepared speeches
4) Learn leadership skills by volunteering for meeting and club roles
5) Free all day parking validation for the Galleria
