Marin Toastmasters, improve your communication skill

San Rafael Corporate Center

During this weekly meeting members practice communication and leadership skills. With around 25 members attending each week, everyone gets a chance to present, give feedback or lead a section of the meeting. ---- Guests are welcome to attend and may participate in the "Table Topics" section of the evening (short impromptu speeches). Please arrive a couple minutes prior to 7pm so that we have a chance to greet you before we start promptly at 7pm. When the meeting ends - at 8:35pm - we'd be happy to answer any questions you may have.

OPEN HOUSE - Pitch Perfect Toastmasters

Dominican University - Edgehill Mansion

This week you get to participate in the full potential of a Toastmasters club meeting. Not only will you get to SEE how a meeting is run, you get to FEEL it! Come check out this supportive and friendly group and enhance your public speaking and leadership skills. As a *specialty club* we provide the opportunity to practice "pitching" - whether you need to pitch an idea, a service, a solution, or even yourself for a job. As a member you get supportive yet honest feedback from your fellow members, which will will help you refine both your skills and your message. We meet every Wednesday from 6:15-7:15pm in the beautiful Edgehill Mansion, at the Dominican College in San Rafael. We welcome community members as well as students. Each meeting provides opportunity for everyone to practice different communication skills, such as: deliver either a prepared or an impromptu speech, give feedback, or leading a section of the meeting.

"Empowered Living" - a special evening by three Toastmasters

This special event is a collaboration between members from two different Toastmasters clubs in the area. These experienced presenters will be delivering extended speeches, "Keynote" style. Come learn and be inspired by the following speeches/speakers: - Master Distractions Before Your Avatar Does - by A.T. Lynne - You Can't Live Someone Else's Purpose - by Joey Chandler - From Overwhelm to Focused Action - by Ulrika Brattemark Our Host/Toastmaster for the evening is Tobi Lessem. ** This is a FREE, non-profit event. No sales pitches! ** Welcome! MASTER DISTRACTIONS BEFORE YOUR AVATAR DOES - A.T. Lynne By 2030, it is expected that 35% of today's workers will be replaced by robots, made redundant by artificial intelligence, or that their very jobs will be extinct. With this looming reality, now is the time to learn what you need to survive and stay employed. In this presentation, A.T. will guide you in experiencing the power already within you that ensures you will thrive in this dangerous yet magical age of change. YOU CAN'T LIVE SOMEONE ELSE'S PURPOSE - Joey Chandler Have you ever gone to a seminar or workshop, become totally excited, and left with plans for how you were going to use them only to find yourself not doing any of it a few days, weeks or months later? Learn how to avoid this all too common occurrence by living your purpose rather than someone else's. Joey Chandler is a purpose and performance coach and lives in San Rafael with his wife and son. FROM OVERWHELM TO FOCUSED ACTION - Ulrika Brattemark We live in a fast paced society with so many demands on our attention and our time. Rarely does it feel like there's enough time in the day or enough days in the week. Join us to discover how to get clarity about what the RIGHT things are for YOU and how to make time for that.
