Toastmasters International is a montly networking event that helps you learn to how to become a skilled public speaker, how to communicate in an effective way, and build leadership skills. On May 16, 2019, we invited Toastmasters to have their meetup at ITU in hopes of getting ITU students to join.
Each meeting has dedicated members carefully listening to each speaker, watching out for filler words, body language, grammar, and storytelling. After each talk, the speaker receives positive feedback from the crowd, plus the specific feedback from the designated “listeners”. It’s truly a great learning experience, especially for students who don’t have very much practice with presenting.
We plan to host these events at least twice a year, so keep an eye out for our next event!
