Dural Toastmasters has just celebrated it’s 40th anniversary which is a significant milestone for any community group. Toastmasters is an International club which promotes the development of public speaking skills. When I was establishing my celebrancy business I realised that I should polish my speaking skills and so I became a member of the Dural Club. It was an invaluable experience as it not only supported my public speaking development but gave my confidence through practice. Meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month, 7 pm at the Dural Country Club. Toastmasters is a little like interactive theatre where you get to develop skills, confidence, establish friendships while being totally engaged and entertained.
