Toastmasters101 podcast provides insight and advice for people who want to improve their public speaking and leadership skills with Toastmasters.
About Toastmasters 101
The purpose of this podcast series is to introduce Toastmasters. If you are interested in the program or have become a new member, we discuss the 10 different projects in the Competent Communicator manual from Toastmasters International. Each podcast covers a different aspect of learning how to
- overcome stage fright
- public speaking skills
- basic leadership skills.
By adding additional insight into the purpose of each project, Toastmasters 101 Podcasts hope to help inspire better progress in a new Toastmaster’s journey.
Special emphasis at the end of each podcast is made on tasks and roles found in the Competent Leadership manual. Because Toastmasters strongly believes that public speaking and leadership grow together, we encourage work on both manuals at the same time.
What is Toastmasters?
