I was literally on the toastmasters website 5 minutes ago. This was right on time. Thanks for posting. I'm going to join my local toastmasters as well.

Oh this makes my day!!! Do it! It’s a really great way for affordable mentorship. Check to see if the club is ranked. That will kind of let you know if they have a good club structure for outcomes. Now all the clubs are virtual do you can join any club you like. I’m joining the Serna Park club. They have people that have the top designations for speaking and developing people.

Such a great and encouraging post - and a worthy reminder :) I very much second that practice makes perfect - and it is all about action, action, action (with as much quality feedback as possible).As for public speaking bit, I would also highly recommend Tostmasters, I was a member a while back and did a lot of practice there, and it really made a big difference in having more confidence (but also become a better speaker), which is still very much paying back as today professional speaking is big part of my career. Still, can't underline enough what @Careeragility2020 said - it's all about practice! Choosing what skill (or subskill) of communication or public speaking is most relevant for one to practice, and then jumping into action mode!Also, having an accountability buddy (being it a friend, or an organization as Toastmasters) can be really helpful to support us from hesitating and persevering...
