    Experience With Toastmasters?

    I keep seeing posts on here about the importance of communication skills. I have several years experience as a customer service rep. I basically deal with initially :madguy: people and resolve their problem or explain the policy without escalating the situation.
    I have no experience making presentations or interviewing for a professional job. Do you think Toastmasters would be a good organization to join? Thank You :smiloe:

    I would say yes. I have no experience with them myself but know people who swear by them. Good practice plus networking.

    Toastmasters can be very helpful with confidence and communication skills. This article might be useful: http://www.imageoftheactuary.org/Hom...7/Default.aspx
