“I recently became a member of the Patsy T. Mink Center for Business and Leadership (MCBL) Toastmasters Club in an effort to advance my public speaking skills. Our MCBL Club was launched late last year. I find the program to be very “beginner friendly”, unintimidating, and supportive. More experienced toastmasters are always part of the meeting to mentor members and to help guide club meetings to meet Toastmasters standards. Besides a fun and supportive learning environment at the MCBL Club, you will also have an opportunity to meet great people outside of your profession.”
