Speaking skills pol­ished

Matamata Chronicle - - News - By KA­T­RINA LINTONBON

Mata­mata Toast­mas­ters is grow­ing in num­bers and with new faces each meet­ing, mem­bers get to meet like minded peo­ple and join to­gether to learn pub­lic speaking and pre­sen­ta­tion skills.

The group is still on the look­out for new mem­bers and all are wel­come.

Meet­ings are held ev­ery first and third Wed­nes­day of the month at the All Saints Angli­can Church lounge gath­er­ing at 7.15pm, ready to start at 7.30pm.

The ul­ti­mate goal of Toast­mas­ters is for mem­bers to be­come com­pe­tent com­mu­ni­ca­tors and to gain the con­fi­dence to speak out when they want to.

Mata­mata Toast­mas­ters mem­ber Robyn Gor­don was re­cently awarded Dis­tin­guished Toast­mas­ter recog­ni­tion by Toast­mas­ters In­ter­na­tional for out­stand­ing ac­com­plish­ments and lead­er­ship ex­cel­lence in pur­suit of the mis­sion of Toast­mas­ters In­ter­na­tional.

Mrs Gor­don has been a mem­ber of Toast­mas­ters for 14 years. She started at­tend­ing meet­ings in Dan­nevirke. She would en­cour­age any­one in Mata­mata to go along to their fort­nightly meet­ings.
