When I joined Toastmasters 5 years ago, my sight was narrowed to learning effective communication and leadership skills. Well, after all, that is what they told me it was about. After I dived in, I met so many people who became my friends, colleagues, business partners and even wife.
I started hanging out with toastmasters and they also became my clients. Of course course I became theirs too. I travelled a lot with toastmasters and networked, then after all that, I also learnt and developed effective speaking and leadership skills. Open your mind, heart and soul and allow toastmasters to give you the full package.
