Toastmasters is where distinguished leaders are made. The Concord area Toastmasters welcome you to a Public Speaking Forum and free raffle on Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. at New England College’s 62 N. Main St. location in Concord.

These events will showcase great public speakers and impromptu speaking, along with tips about how to organize a speech, effectively move an audience and to think on your feet. The program will be informal but will include the elements of a standard meeting so guests can observe the Toastmasters’ experience. The program will include timed speeches, word of the day and table topics, where club members speak extemporaneously. All of this is done in a warm and supportive environment committed to helping you expand your speaking and leadership skills.

“Toastmasters has helped me to overcome my fear of public speaking and to grow in my self-confidence. I’ve made incredible friends,” said member Kim Lampron.

Toastmasters provides a supportive, positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.

The public is invited to join this fun and welcoming bunch who want to share their positive experiences in Toastmasters with you. This event will be hosted by five Toastmasters clubs in the Concord area. There will be light refreshments and an opportunity to win prizes. Bring a friend, a sense of humor and a desire to grow your club’s communication skills.

The Toastmasters in Concord also welcome you to a series of Open House Celebrations at NEC Concord. These open houses will be held this Thursday, March 26 and April 24.
