We’re excited to share that we’re chartering our first UTSW chapter of Toastmasters, an educational program that empowers members to develop public speaking, communication, and leadership skills in a supportive, self-paced environment. Organizational Development and Training will host local Toastmasters leaders, who will demonstrate what a standard meeting looks like and answer your questions, at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, June 14. Register ahead of time to add the event to your calendar.
