Committee role: President
Occupation: Counselling, Nutritional Therapist and Yoga Teacher

I’ve always enjoyed talking in front of the audience. Debates were my absolute favorite at school. When walking to the peak of the mountain, there’s always challenges. A few days before speaking in front of the audience, I get this queasy feeling in my stomach. The rise of contemplation to cancel won’t go away. The level of stress increases. My hands get sweaty before I go on stage. I feel like I want to run away. I could almost hear every beat of my heart. Overcoming fear of public speaking and anxiety has always been a major struggle for me. I had to put more effort to develop my listening, writing and critical thinking skills, including vocabulary and general speech fluency.

I needed help. The search began and Toastmaster’s was the only tool available to equip me with what I envisaged. When I joined Toastmasters the team made me feel ever so welcomed, they motivated, inspired and encouraged me immensely. I’m glad I never looked back from July 2016. I gathered there is no other particular component of leadership that is as vital, so necessary that without it, leadership cannot exist. That component is confidence.

Self confidence is the fundamental basis from which leaders grows. Running my business without without first building my confidence is like building a house on a foundation of sand. It may have a nice coat of paint, but it is ultimately shaky at best. In my business I interact with and accommodate varied personalities and traits. My clients need to be able to approach me and know that I will address their needs in a professional manner. Toastmasters improved my communication, leadership and public speaking skills. The training tremendously has a huge impact on my future investment.
