Paul Bunyan Toastmasters will be adding a morning meeting to accommodate the schedules of business people.
Meetings will be 7:30-8:30 a.m. every Friday at the Sawmill Inn, Brainerd. Prospective members are welcome to attend a meeting with no obligation to join. The first morning meeting will be Friday.
Paul Bunyan Toastmasters will continue to meet at noon every Friday at the Sawmill Inn as they have for many years. A member may attend either meeting or both.
The mission of Toastmasters is to "provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth."
Members learn to create and deliver many different kinds of speeches, practice extemporaneous speaking, use proper language and grammar, lead meetings, think clearly and make decisions on their feet, deliver and accept honest evaluations and more. Toastmasters may be best known for helping people rid their speech of "audible pauses" such as "ahh" and "umm."
Toastmasters also offers a leadership program. Members are taught how to be a club officer. Some choose to serve at division or district level or higher.
"It's long been known that working through the Toastmasters program builds self confidence along with leadership and communication skills. The benefits of Toastmasters goes far beyond better speaking skills," said 20-year Toastmaster Dan Hegstad, in a news release. "Toastmasters is where it's OK to make mistakes. Practice here and put those skills into practice at work and in the community."
