Here's what members are saying about Toastmasters Challengers Club #734
Member since 2007 "Thanks to our Toastmasters Club 734, I had the knowledge, skills and confidence to be interviewed live on national radio for 30 minutes! This interview was broadcast on 141 radio stations, and helped my business spread happiness. It’s still available on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgqXGe_fm3s&feature=youtu.be)." — Rami Lazarescu, CC Silver and CEO & Founder of Happiness Assurance, Inc.
Member Since 1998 "When I became an insurance broker, my business associate and mentor suggested that I join Toastmasters. In order to promote my business, I started going to various networking groups, such as Chamber of Commerce. For me it was a very traumatic experience - my stomach would be in knots, my voice barely audible and I sounded like the village idiot! So I decided to check out a Toastmaster’s meeting. All it took was one meeting and I was hooked. Now I am able to stand up and tell my audience about myself and my business." — Dee Roberts, ATM, and Owner of Roberts Insurance Agency.
Member Since 1990 "I’ve been in Toastmasters for about 14 years. What I came to get was the knowledge and confidence to be a paid public speaker. I have been doing that for the last 10 years. It has given me the practice and expertise to handle any situation I am in, whether planned or unplanned. I have recouped so much more than I ever imagined and I still do each time I attend a meeting." —Clement Pepe DTM, and Success Coach and Owner of PowerTechnology.org
