Years as a Toastmaster


Why you joined?

After completing my studies, I worked as an engineer in space research. I knew then I would have to make presentations at conferences. Being very shy, I decided to join Toastmasters to be more comfortable with such presentations, especially answering the questions following the presentations.

Why you stay?

Because I forgot to disembark!

More seriously, there are many reasons: the mutual development of members who continually help each other, the friendships that are created with the members of our club and other clubs, the countless development opportunities offered by Toastmasters, opportunities for improvement by participating at speech contests (and also previously, at humorous speech contests).

One lesson you learned on your journey to DTM

The importance of getting out of our comfort zone to continually progress.
