What is your main interest in joining a Toastmasters meeting?

I have a fear of presenting in front of people no matter if it's a small or large group. As I am presenting my thoughts either overlap and I end up confusing myself mid sentence or I lose my train of thought. I have a hard time getting my words out and when I finally do I rush through my presentation so fast I run out of breath. Funny I know the lack of practice is killing me.

Is public speaking important for your work?

Absolutely. It doesn't matter how great of a designer I am or how confident I am in my work if I can't put the same passion in presenting as I put into my work I am handicapping my progress as a professional.

Does public speaking make you anxious? Nervous?

All of the above.

Introduction

I am a passionate designer with many years of experience and have had the opportunity to travel for work meeting clients. My public speaking experience is not nearly as close to the level of my design and it is time I did something about it.
