M.L. Toastmasters hold Open House Feb. 18

Community Friday, February 14, 2014


Miami Lakes Toastmasters has invited area residents to attend an Open House to meet members, learn more about Toastmasters International, and explore how Toastmasters can improve the communication skills for today’s professionals.

The Open House is scheduled from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, February 18, at Miami Lakes Educational Center, 5780 N.W. 158 Street.

Members and guests will enjoy a special Toastmasters meeting that will include prepared speeches, table topics (impromptu speeches) and evaluations. “Table Topics” is one of my favorite parts of the meeting,” said Lillian Thomas, vice president of membership. “This is where members (and guests who want to participate), are randomly selected to speak for one to two minutes. It helps you think and speak clearly on your feet.”

“Miami Lakes Toastmasters provides a supportive and positive environment where members have the opportunity to develop their communication and leadership skills,” said club president Thomas Harrell.

The Miami Lakes Toastmasters Club meets on the first and third Tuesdays at 7 p.m. at Miami Lakes Educational Center. For more information on the Open House event, email Lillian Thomas at miamilakestoastmasters@gmail.com.
