St. Maarten – Two new members have now been added to the Philipsburg Toastmasters Club. The organization which exists to train persons in the art of effective speaking and listening handed over certificates to Leopold Merrick and Patricia Williams after the pair successfully completed their evaluations.
The official installation exercise took place last Thursday and according to Toastmaster George Richardson, persons can gain increased confidence and leadership skills when they become involved in the program. “You will be amazed at your own potential to deliver great presentations, lead teams and conduct meetings, give and receive constructive feedback and become a better listener.”
St.Maarten as part of District 81p is home to four Toastmasters Clubs; the Soualiga Corporate Toastmasters Club, Achievers Toastmasters Club, Disciples Toastmasters Club and the Philipsburg Toastmasters Club.
The Philipsburg Toastmasters Club meets every first, second and fifth Thursday of the month at the Philipsburg Jubilee Library from 7:45 pm.
