I do not fear of public speaking and speaking my mind in front of a group of people has never been a major problem. Yet I have found that I have gained so much from being a toastmaster, which was not what I expected.
- Running a meeting;
- Providing constructive feedback that allows someone else to know where they are doing well and where they still can grow;
- Being asked something on the spot and having the skills to respond in a structured and confident way
- Sounding more confident when I speak because I'm now aware what can make you sound less assured. Such as saying "Ums and Ahs" rather than pausing and taking a deep breath before continuing.
