Mary Heary Tall Tales Competition 2015

Five brave contestants battled it out at the annual Mary Heary Tall Tales Competition on Wednesday May 13, 2015. They regaled us with fantastic tales that had two things in common - ridiculous stories and lots of laughter. Congratulations to our winner Tony Corrie who will be representing the Club at the Area contest on May 28. Thank you also to our wonderful co-Chairs Norkys Crespo and Roberto Fazio who did a great job of directing proceedings smoothly and with flair! 

Welcome To Glen Abbey Toastmasters

Uncomfortable giving a business presentation? Worried about leading a community meeting? Nervous during an interview? Find Your Confident Voice This Year!

Many of us have a deep fear of speaking in public, yet we know that strong communication skills can help us in all aspects of daily living - business success, career advancement, relationships with family members and getting along with others in general.

Toastmasters will help you to: speak and present compellingly; think quickly and clearly; listen effectively, and become a stronger leader.  You will learn these skills and more in a supportive, self-paced, affordable, and fun atmosphere.

Are you ready to take your first step?  Be our guest at the next Glen Abbey Toastmasters meeting.
