Westborough – John Lau, president of Toastmasters International, visited the Renaissance Advanced Toastmasters Club at the Doubletree Hotel on Computer Drive Nov. 1. Lau challenged the group to double its membership, and participated in the regular meeting of Renaissance. Three speeches were offered by club members and critiqued by other club members, which is the essence of Toastmasters clubs.
Founded in 1924, Toastmasters has about 260,000 members in 113 countries in 13,000 clubs. Renaissance requires members to complete the first 10 speeches in the basic manual before joining the club, which has many professional speakers as members.?Toastmasters International is the leading nonprofit organization devoted to creating effective leaders and communicators worldwide.?By regularly giving speeches (prepared and impromptu), giving and receiving constructive feedback, and working with others in a friendly, supportive environment, members of Toastmasters learn the vital skills of speaking, listening and thinking.
