Robin's story

"After proposing to my fiance, I faced the daunting prospect of having to speak to a

large number of people at our wedding.

Due to my anxiety, I always had a fear of public speaking and actively avoided it.  But having mustered the courage, I decided to challenge my fear and I joined Thame Toastmasters.

Although I was incredibly nervous the day I attended, I needn't have worried as I found everyone to be friendly and welcoming.  The biggest advantage of joining Thame Toastmasters was that I was able to speak in front of a helpful audience, using Toastmasters platform, at a pace that suited me.  Month by month, I found my confidence improving which resulted in better speaking.

With help from the welcoming members at Thame Toastmasters, I found myself able to stand in front of an audience, without fear, and deliver a wedding speech the way I wanted to.

Following my wedding, I remain a member and enjoy attending meetings to improve my speaking further.  The evenings are also informative, fun, and it's also a great way to meet new people.  My only regret was not joining sooner"
