Lowcountry Toastmasters Club to host open house celebration

Lowcountry Toastmasters Club #8292

Lowcountry Toastmasters (https://8292.toastmastersclubs.org) invites the public to an open house on Saturday, June 9th, at 8:30 a.m. to learn about the benefits of Toastmasters. The new Pathways education program for communication and leadership, combines a modern curriculum of 10 learning paths and certifications with the proven, supportive club environment. Attendance is free.

The Pathways education program offers members the opportunity to learn more than 300 unique competencies. Dynamic new projects include persuasive speaking, motivating others, blogging, conducting online meetings, podcasting, ethical leadership, managing a group in a difficult situation, and more. As club members progress through Pathways, they:
- Practice and improve their communication and leadership skills, receiving constructive feedback from other members,
- Challenge themselves to build and refine certain competencies, and
- Complete projects to earn badges that contribute to Toastmasters International’s new certifications.

“Lowcountry Toastmasters provides a positive environment, where members have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects, learning skills that are immediately transferable to their careers.” said Lisa Berry, club president. “With a modern, blended learning program, Pathways, provides members the opportunity to improve their communication and leadership skills. From day-to-day interactions to speaking in larger groups, as well as important leadership skills to enhance careers and community service., the Toastmasters program will benefit anyone seeking self-improvement.”

The club is celebrating its move and partnership to the new venue: FOOD on Spruill. With refreshments available, the open house will provide a special look into the Toastmasters experience, along with a presentation by guest speaker and Toastmaster, Randy Adkins. The event will also feature a standard format with opportunities for members and guests to participate, including in Table Topics™. This popular, fun section features volunteers giving a one-to-two minute speech about an impromptu question or topic. The short, impromptu talks are one of the best skills to master, as Table Topics enhances communication daily.
