Great opportunity to refine public speaking skills, no matter what industry
Secretary/President (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – January 6, 2019
I highly recommend that any company (or building with multiple offices) establish a Toastmasters chapter. Public speaking is a skill that's underrated yet so important in any industry. It's an asset to any company in which any degree of public speaking is involved - for anyone who's terrified of interviews or presentations, to those who want to refine their current skills.
Area Director (Former Employee) – Yamhill County, OR – January 12, 2019
I really enjoyed the experience. As an Area Director in Toastmasters International, I got to visit the clubs in my area and meet a lot of people. I was also responsible for running the area speech competitions.
I got to meet a lot of people and learn about their clubs.
Time restraints made it difficult to get to the clubs as often as I would have liked.

I've enjoyed my time with Toastmasters a lot. It's a very team oriented environment and supportive. It's a unique business model, even in the nonprofit sector. They do seem a little lacking technology wise but they do have to keep a tight budget and manage many priorities. I would recommend working here.
Great Organization who believes in team building and leadership.

Toastmasters International was dedicated and focused on providing exceptional service to our members all over the world.

Scheduler (Former Employee) – La Jolla, CA – October 4, 2018
Toastmasters clubs around the world meet weekly in a specific format which encourages each member to advance his or her public speaking skills. The meetings can be energizing and are a great way to learn to think on your feet, polish presentation skills and improve all kinds of communication.
Copywriter (Former Employee) – Rancho Santa Margarita, CA – August 30, 2018
No modern perks like remote work or flexible schedule, but people were very nice. Lacked the opportunity to be autonomous and truly creative; however that's to be expected in a 90+ year old organization.
Toastmasters International is a volunteer organization that helps people find their voice and engage in leadership training.
Division Director (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – August 12, 2018
I have been in Toastmasters International since April 2015. Toastmasters has helped me further develop speaking skills through many different levels of training. Toastmasters also provided leadership training and the opportunity to test these skills in multiple local and district level positions.
Vice President of Education (Current Employee) – Oshkosh, WI – July 10, 2018
Our biweekly meetings are crucial to our development as individuals and as a whole club. Although I just started attending club meetings this year, I've improved on: time-management skills, scheduling, organization, and have owned my professional autonomy skills.
Member Services Supervisor (Former Employee) – Rancho Santa Margarita, CA – June 6, 2018
I really enjoyed my time here. However, like most call centers it is full of drama. Management is just as bad as the representatives in that there is a no support supervisors from senior leaders. Just plan on going to work and doing your job. Steer clear of attempting to build rapport. Stay focused and r job and you MAY be fine if they like you enough.
Administrative Assistant/HMIS Coordinator (Former Employee) – 811 Wilshire Blvd Los Angeles, CA – April 16, 2018
Considering the nature of my position at LAHSA, I lead a very critical role in my department and to the organization as a whole. I found my work very fulfilling and I would do it all over again. The management team support my advancement and my two promotions based on merit. I implemented several systems within the deprtment allowing it to function more efficient and produce more accurate reports. My workplace was stressful at times, however my staff and management team had my support as much as I received from them in return.

Secretary (Current Employee) – Richardson, TX – March 21, 2018
Improved my leadership and communication skills. Initially I didn't had confidence to give an impromptu speech in front of audience. Time and practice in toastmaster's meeting gave a boost in my confidence. I am a better speaker now.
