If you want to learn more about evaluating, a member of Croydon Communicators is delivering a webinar on Monday 14th March at 8pm GMT) Ten Top Tips for Successful Evaluation .
Has Toastmasters helped you become a more versatile speaker? How have you used the skills you learned in Toastmasters? Have you used them in any unusual ways, e.g. compered a dog show, been the MC at a friend’s wedding, introduced the acts at a circus (okay, that’s a bit far fetched but you get the idea). If you have, we would like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
