Committee

Committee

The club is led and managed by the following committee members, committee members are volunteers who have joined Windsor Speakers and as part of the Toastmasters program joining in and getting involved on the committee is an excellent way to improve skills and create a network:

Tony,
Club President.
“While I never felt that nervous about public speaking I certainly wasn’t jumping at opportunities to practice in front of groups.

Being able to speak in public is such a key skill. While a lot of us may not have to speak in public to audiences on a regular basis, we may have to speak on conference calls or at smaller team meetings at work. The practice and learning you’ll get at Toastmasters helps with all of this too and you’ll become much more confident about speaking in front of others in general. Another skill that has been a key benefit to me has been organising and running meetings. Toastmasters has really helped me with this and that has been great in my work career.”  

Tracey,
VP Education.
“I joined Windsor speakers because I felt it was a warm and welcoming club. It is large enough for a good audience but also small enough so that you get the opportunity to participate in roles at most meetings to develop both your speaking and leadership skills.
“My aim has been to develop my speech writing style and delivery to engage the audience. I find the supportive feedback the group gives really helps you learn and improve. The more roles and speeches you do the better you become at managing your nerves and smiling.”   

   
   
   

Mustafa,
VP Membership.
“I first heard about Toastmasters a decade before I joined Windsor Speakers, and although I was convinced of the benefits of joining a club I didn’t join, because I felt that public speaking was always my Achilles heel. At Windsor Speakers, I found the right mix of support, encouragement, structure, motivation, and a sense of community to help me in overcoming my fear of public speaking. I can confidently say, the benefits I expected from being part of a Toastmasters club have far exceeded my expectations.
Within just one year of my Toastmasters journey, I have developed skills in public speaking and have become more confident in both my professional and personal life.”

Yvette,
VP Finance.
“I joined Windsor Speakers because I wanted to practice public speaking in a safe environment, supported by a group of people that understand some of the stresses that public speaking can bring.
“Being comfortable speaking in front of large groups of people is important to me and I now have the perfect opportunity to do this regularly, whilst having fun learning new skills.”

   
   
   

Jean,
Secretary.
“When I joined Windsor Speakers the idea of standing in front of an audience gave me goose bumps. I quickly appreciated the ability to develop public speaking skills was very much within my grasp.

My journey has been extremely beneficial and rewarding, and I am now able to stand in front of an audience and present without nerves and with complete confidence. I feel empowered and energised. Not only have I developed a great skill but I have also made great friendships too.

Windsor Speakers provides a wonderfully friendly, caring and supportive environment for people of any age, nationality, background and profession.

Everyone has to start somewhere, so don’t feel daunted or shy. It’s a great club and worth a visit. We look forward to seeing you soon!” 

Jeev,
VP Public Relations.
“I have seen a number of Toastmasters and Windsor Speakers consistently has been the best balance of professionalism and friendliness for new and expert speakers alike. It has an award winning history. I love the regular and new audiences. The cultural diversity is commendable. We learn, we have fun, we practice, we improve!”
