Have you heard of the international nonprofit Toastmasters? In 2017, a local JP branch was formed. Danna Baida, a charter member of Jamaica Plain's branch answered questions about the organization, how it assists people to be better public speakers and how it helps brides and grooms with their wedding speeches. Q: What is JP Toastmasters? Baida: JP Toastmasters is the Jamaica Plain chapter of Toastmasters International, an educational non-profit dedicated to empowering individuals to become more effective communicators and leaders.
A new Toastmasters club is hosting an introductory meeting on November 28 at 7 pm in the Community Room at Curtis Hall. Community members are invited to visit, observe, and learn more about opportunities to improve their leadership, communication, and public speaking skills in a supportive and fun environment. Toastmasters is a worldwide non-profit educational organization dedicated to helping people practice speaking, listening, management, and leadership skills. Toastmasters is open to community members age 18 or older of all backgrounds and experience levels. Members are interested in personal and professional development, and want to improve their communication skills.
