JOINING TOASTMASTERS HAS ENHANCED EVERY AREA OF MY LIFE AND  HAS HELPED ME TO BECOME A MORE COMPASSIONATE AND EMPATHETIC LEADER TO MYSELF AND OTHERS. 

I was inspired to join Toastmasters from a very successful friend who shared how the TM program had transformed his life.

Communication is at the heart of everything I do, personally and professionally; the quality of my life has grown exponentially as a result of my attendance and active participation.

UTTC’s commitment to leave no member behind and their circle of mentorship has endeared UTTC to me.

If you are looking to jumpstart your life, gain confidence, and to find a safe place to grow and prosper in all areas of your life, UTTC is the place. It has changed my life.

I FEEL MORE CONFIDENT WHENEVER I SPEAK IN FRONT OF A GROUP AT WORK

I always wanted to become a confident public speaker but I did not know what to do for that. When my friend Yu told me about this club, I thought that was the ideal place to practice my skills.

 As I practice speeches and different meeting roles, I feel more confident whenever I speak in front of a group at work and I became more proactive to give my opinion. I have gained more leadership skills too.

What I appreciate most is that UTTC is an incredibly warm community of passionate and friendly people who want to grow and learn from one another.

If you want to improve your public speaking and leadership skills, this is the place to be. It might be a little intimidating to join your first meeting, but everyone is really friendly and I assure you you will feel welcome. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

IT TRULY HAS CHANGED MY LIFE AND THE PEOPLE IN MY LIFE.

I joined Toastmasters because I liked what I saw in someone else that was a member. I had no idea what I was really going to get out of it. The result; I have become a far better listener,  I recognized the need to adjusted my content and hone in on my message rather than drowning my audience with details that are unimportant, and I can now confidently speak in any situation without thinking that might fall flat on my face. It truly has changed my life and the people in my life.

I COME TO A JOYFUL PROACTIVE INSTRUCTOR AFTER PASSING THROUGH THE JOURNEY OF TOASTMASTERS ACTIVITIES.

I wanted to become a confident instructor but I always felt nervous during class. What the paths given me was to leave or to hold the job. I chose to hold it and decided to change myself through Toastmasters practical experiences.

Although I live in Japan apart from most of the members in Canada, I feel connected to them who are always care about me, answer my questions quickly and encourage me.

Weekly meetings make me feel close to the members. I have been learning not only communication and leadership skills but also time management and flexible deeds.

There are so many enthusiastic inspiring members who welcome everyone. All you need is to take your first step into our club. Let’s enjoy, grow, learn together!

WHETHER IT'S ABOUT GROWING YOUR COMMUNICATION, PUBLIC SPEAKING, OR LEADERSHIP SKILLS, TOASTMASTERS TRULY IS THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING.

My job requires me to regularly do public presentations at meetings and events. I have always done ‘well enough’ but really wanted to take it to the next level. This is why I joined Toastmasters.  My first experience at Unicorn Tribe was a memorable one. I felt welcomed and included…..very important for someone to feel when entering a new environment. What I love about this club is that there is no “me”. Members constantly contribute to one another’s success. As a result, I get as excited about my growth as I do about my fellow members’ growth. And I know that the sentiment is mutual. Every single meeting, members feel safe and supported. Whether it's about growing your communication, public speaking, or leadership skills, Toastmasters truly is the gift that keeps on giving. And at Unicorn Tribe, there are no limits.

JOINING TOASTMASTERS HAS HELPED ME TO LEARN HOW TO ADVOCATE FOR MYSELF AND TO FIND MY INNER VOICE.

I was desperately in need of a safe place to improve my communication skills.

After joining Toastmasters, not only did my English skills improve, so did my overall communication skills. I learned the importance of cultural and emotional intelligence and how to be  a more considerate person  when communicating with others. I learned how to be more assertive.

I have found that UTTC is a safe place to practice communication and leadership building skills. There is a sense of family and belonging and for me this is very important.

I struggled for years wanting to be a better communicator and to find a safe place to grow personally and professionally.  Toastmasters, and specifically UTTC, has become that “safe growing place”.  Weekly, we celebrate each other's growth.  It has worked for me and it could work for you.

I CHERISH THE UTTC BECAUSE THIS CLUB HAS INFECTIOUS POSITIVITY, THE FRIENDLIEST FACES, AND ENDLESS OPPORTUNITIES FOR GROWTH.

I joined Toastmasters because I lacked confidence in my communication and speaking skills. I was shy, I often stumbled over my own words, and I was terrified of having all eyes on me! I had no idea how to approach this problem, but I came across a flyer for UTTC. After joining UTTC, my confidence has grown by leaps and bounds. I readily and excitedly approach challenges at work, and my personal relationships have also benefited from the communication skills I have learned. I cherish the UTTC because this club has infectious positivity, the friendliest faces, and endless opportunities for growth. If you are even the least bit interested in what Toastmasters has to offer, I encourage you to visit our club. Everyone is welcome to the Tribe!
