A Jamaica Plain resident recently won the Toastmasters Evaluation Contest for Eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Greg Matos, a member of JP Toastmasters, is the director of the Boston Vet Center and author of "Shattered Glass: The Story of a Marine Embassy Guard." Matos joined Toastmasters to “sharpen my public speaking skills and scale my impact, sharing psychology beyond the therapy hour." About his experience with Toastmasters, he said, "It's helped me tremendously, from keeping me from rambling and helping me give a speech without having to memorize anything." Contestants were judged on their ability to provide clear, positive, and motivational feedback.
