Public speaking is the #1 ranked fear yet it doesn't have to be. Is it a fear of yours? Or perhaps you just are looking for an opportunity to take your presentation abilities to the next level? Or perhaps you're looking for opportunities to grow your leadership skills?  

If you find yourself in one or more of these situations, come visit our Toastmasters@Emory club every Wednesday morning from 7:45-9:00 am at the Goizueta Business School in room 500 (5th floor).  

Our club membership consists of Emory employees, students and members of the community. We pride ourselves on providing a fun, welcoming and supportive environment. Our club offers you the ability to practice giving prepared speeches, impromptu speaking and leadership opportunities.

Here's a link to our club's website for more information (ie where to park, information about Toastmasters, etc)
