Presentation by Siouxland Toastmasters

Typically, more than half of a person's day is spent in oral communication, in which you could be persuading, explaining, influencing, motivating, counseling, or instructing. A company's success depends largely on communication skills, whether that be with your employees or clients and customers. Join us as representatives with Siouxland Toastmasters discuss ways to hone these skills.

Space is limited. Please register here or RSVP to Kerry Gill.
