“The Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce Toastmasters provides a supportive and positive environment where members have the opportunity to develop their communication and leadership skills,” said Mike.

After hearing from Mike, members and guests will enjoy a regular Toastmasters meeting that will include prepared speeches, Table Topics (impromptu speeches) and evaluations.

Club VP of Education David Balch, who has served in various club positions, will be the Table Topics master. “Table Topics are one of my favorite parts of the meeting,” said Balch. “This is where guests and members are randomly selected to speak for one to two minutes. It helps you think and speak clearly on your feet.”
