THE Mornington Peninsula Toastmasters have been toasting new members but are still keen to welcome more.
For nearly 100 years the organisation has encouraged and supported people from diverse backgrounds in becoming more confident speakers, communicators and leaders.
Member Jacky Howgate said public speaking could be nerve wracking, but the support of Toastmasters made it a much less daunting activity that had boosted her confidence.
Club president Sue Macdonald said being part of Toastmasters was also good for meeting new people from all walks of life.
“It’s a great way to learn how to speak confidently in public, in a safe, supportive, positive and enjoyable learning environment and make new friends along the way,” she said.
Anyone interested in public speaking can attend every second and fourth Thursday of the month, 7.15 for 7.30pm. at Mornington Community House, 3/91 Wilsons Road (corner Nepean Highway), Mornington
Online attendance is an option for people who may not be able to make a meeting in person.
