Toastmasters Teaches Public Speaking Skills in Hendersonville, North Carolina

     I joined Winter Park Toastmasters in Florida when I was a young man.  I had read and studied "How To Be Successful"  books enough to understand that public speaking skill was a fast track to making more money.

     At the time, I had just left my first "real job" after college as an automobile salesman.  I had just graduated from real estate school.

     Selling real estate is about doing excellent presentations.  No one told me that learning to be a good public speaker will make you better at one on one presentations.  It will.

Enhance your career.  Join Toastmasters 
     With in four years, I was working for a real estate franchise as a sales trainer.  Everything I learned at Toastmasters enhanced my career, boosted my confidence and raised my income.   If you are interested in advancing your career, you can find very few skills that will enhance your paycheck faster than learning to be an excellent public speaker.  You will find no avenue that will make you an excellent public speaker better than joining your local Toastmaster club.

     Flashback in time.  As I looked at Winter Park Toastmasters website page (link above) for the first time in my life two minutes ago, I saw Blake Smith and Andy Brown in a picture of  "Distinguished Toastmasters" in their club.  When Blake joined Winter Park Toastmasters in the early ninties, he was a termite inspector.  Why would a termite inspector need public speaking skill?  In Toastmasters he met, Kim Glaner that worked for Motorola.  Now, Blake is an executive at Motorola.  Also in that picture is Andy Brown, the head instructor at the biggest best real estate school in Florida.  I know that the groundwork for both those careers was created at Toastmasters.

     Maybe weekly Toastmaster meetings are not the best way for you to learn to be a good public speaker.    If you think it might be and if you live anywhere near Hendersonville, North Carolina, join us on Wednesday morning at eight.  You can spend the results.
