DO you have trouble speaking in public and would you like to join a supportive club that can help you overcome those fears?

Long-time Toastmasters Club members Maggie Sydenham and Barbara Owens are sponsoring the launch of a new daytime Toastmasters Club at Windang and are urging other ladies with similar interests to join them in their fortnightly group at Club Windang.

"Toastmasters is the world's largest organisation dedicated to helping people achieve their potential by developing members' communication and leadership skills," Maggie Sydenham said.

"In over 800 clubs around Australia, members learn public speaking and other valuable skills in a warm and supportive environment."

"Getting up in front of a crowd and making a speech is not everyone's cup of tea. In fact, there are many people for whom public speaking is a terrifying prospect. For some, just having to address a meeting at work is enough to cause panic attacks."

The idea behind a daytime club means it is ideal for retirees or shift workers, part-time workers and parents at home with children at school.

Windang Toastmasters meets at 1pm on the first and third Wednesday of each month from 1pm at Club Windang. For information phone Barbara on 4203 1995 or Maggie on 4272 2278.
