As a skilled immigrant from China, I was looking to improve my English skills. Toastmasters
was mentioned and recommended to me by a work colleague after an export award
I work in the international business development and relationship building profession which
requires strong communication skills to facilitate international trade and investment across a variety of international markets.
Joining Harbourview Toastmasters has been a transformative experience for me. It has built my
confidence in public speaking to grow my career and fostered a growth-mindset so I keep practicing and improving the presentation skills.
It not only improves my speaking skills but also the listening skills, the ability to seek and give
constructive feedback, and the skills of planning and chairing meetings .
It is such a diverse learning experience. It’s open for people from all different backgrounds who are at different public speaking skill levels.
