Open Doors for our Open Day this February!
Our doors are open for our first Open Day of 2020! We look forward to welcoming anyone looking to develop their communication and presentation skills on the 11th February at The Cairn Hotel, starting at 6.45pm.
Operating under the global framework of Toastmasters International, a non-profit organisation with clubs all over the world, our group aims to help members improve their communication, public speaking, and leadership skills, alongside strengthening soft skills such as confidence and resilience.
The open evening will give you a taste of what Toastmasters is all about and how it can help you develop personally and professionally, with insight into a typical meeting as well as a chance to chat with some of our 35 members about their experiences at the club. Refreshments will also be provided.
The committee recently invested in a new website to house information about the club and informative blog posts, starting the New Year off with a push to modernise the club, connect users to valuable resources and encourage new memberships.
Jessica Dodds, club and committee member says; “Toastmasters not only builds confidence, but inspires it. As a marketer and business owner, I am incredibly aware of the value of good articulation and commanding a room. Strictly Speaking Harrogate Toastmasters provides much more than that.
With the opportunity to hone skills such as presentation mastery or the art of persuasive speech, I have not only built confidence but increased my ambition to speak at larger and more challenging events to test my new abilities.
Speaking aside, Strictly Speaking Harrogate is a warm, friendly and incredibly supportive environment, where you learn and develop just as much from listening, as you do from taking part. I have developed new friendships and built a network amongst my local community and I couldn’t recommend joining enough!”
We look forward to seeing you there!
