Did you know that Toastmasters was begun in the basement of the YMCA?
While we won't be in the basement, there is a new Toastmasters club forming at The Y in Ocala.
What do Oscar-nominees Harrison Ford and Leonardo DiCaprio along with Oscar-winners Forest Whitaker and Tom Hanks have in common, besides their noteworthy performances? All have expressed a fear of public speaking, or as Ford famously described it, “a mixed bag of terror and anxiety.” They are not alone. Abraham Lincoln, Jay Leno, Albert Einstein, Oprah Winfrey and Lucille Ball, to name a few, also suffered to varying degrees from glossophobia or the fear of public speaking. Yet the ability to communicate well transcends the famous andis an integral part of most people’s lives.
We look forward to seeing you there!
