These are great quotes that many of us in Toastmasters can use for opening of speeches. Sometimes we need to be reminded to listen more, and I’m grateful that I have become a better listener after being in Toastmasters for 10 years. This Blog post was shared from one that I admire.
Take a moment and reflect on these great quotes from some of the most brilliant minds.
We all need to stop and give ourselves openings to good presentations. I hope for all my Toastmaster friends this post will inspire you to have a great year. For those of you who have not discovered Toastmasters, 2011 maybe your year to become a more effective presenter, listener and evaluator. Go to http://www.toastmasters.org and look at Find a Club, put in your Zip code and the Day of the Week that you would like to attend a meeting. Visit several clubs until you find one that you feel has the right feel for you, then join. For over 85 years, Toastmasters has helped several million people overcome the Fear of Public Speaking.
