The importance of making a point has never been so prominent. These days, the ability to communicate effectively has the power to enrich both your personal and professional life, as well as influence the outside world.

Thankfully, there's a group that has been working with New Orleanians on the art of the presenting for 75 years, and is coming to share their tips and tricks with Net2NO (just in time to prep for BarCampNOLA).

We're excited to welcome the New Orleans Toastmasters to our June meetup. On June 1st (the exact 75 year anniversary of the group) three speakers will be featured, with examples highlighting a motivational speech and two inspirational speeches - all while providing the group with the do's and don't's of public speaking.

• Advanced speaker Anthony Sariol will be giving one of his award winning motivational speeches.

• Decorated and past official, and current Training and Development Manager, Rebecca Arnett will be giving a speech about her career through Toastmasters.

• Toastmaster member Eva Nusbaum will be giving her 10th speech from the Toastmaster manuals, a celebrated occasion for all Toastmasters!

Special thanks to New Orleans Toastmasters Club 234 for also providing snacks and drinks for the meetup.

As with all Net2NO meetups, the event is free and open to anyone. Please share and invite others that you feel would enjoy the content and networking. We're looking forward to seeing you on Thursday, June 1st!
