For anyone who writes and is thinking of joining Toastmasters: Use writing you've already done as foundations for your speeches. You've already done the work. Conversely, a speech you write may be great material somewhere else. Write once, use multiple times!

Jen-agreed! That post was great. I loved how it addressed the heart of our thoughts and beliefs that are within so we can change how we present outwardly.

Kent talks about the importance of personal mission statements in his Speak It Forward Bootcamp. In using mine this last year it has been incredible in helping me drive my business and personal goals forward. Therefore including in my IFA modules and hosting a free show tonight with Brad McCullouch at 9pm cst - live chat will be open if you are interested in joining in or asking questions. Click HERE.

A great resource that I found at my work library to read is "Speak to Win" by Brian Tracy. Great "to the point" tips. I like his books because he don't beat around the bush when he writes. He talks about speaking to large and small audiences. Being persuasive. Overcoming fear, voice techniques and selling yourself. I may have to add this book to my library! :)

I actually didn't join Toastmasters, but rather I came to enjoy speaking through a baptism by fire through profession: I became a high school history teacher.  That experience meant the world to me in terms of being in front of a group of people, making sure that your message can be understood by everyone in the room and keeping them engaged (which, if you are talking about teenagers, is a tall task when your subject matter is the Dark Ages).  However, before that, I was a sportscaster (which is not the same thing because people don't look at you when I'm doing a game, but might be related).  I can tell you that the greatest lesson I ever learned about public speaking was through becoming a sportscaster which is: The message you bring is more important than the messenger.  People don't care who you are if they don't know you - they care about what you have to say, not the fact that you are saying it.  I actually just did a podcast for a friend where I laid out how I went from being someone completely freaked out by being on the radio or television to someone who now really enjoys it (and I'm still an introvert)  If you scroll to the 8:52 mark, that's where my story starts. (Note: this is not an example of me speaking my presentation to an audience, just an example of my story through an interview) http://traffic.libsyn.com/careerproinc/Empowering_Teens_Through_Pas...
