Toastmasters has been incredibly valuable for me professionally, mentally, and in my life in general. I can easily use everything I learn there in my job, and I’ve considerably improved my English speaking skills. I’ve also learnt one of my most profound lessons: I used to repeat everything I say many times but now I’m more concise and focus on the main message.

Mannheim has been my second home away from Frankfurt am Main. I have been lucky enough to make this my second home in Toastmasters. Although I had been exposed to public speaking for many years, I had never had to give a speech without notes. However, Toastmasters is more than learning how to improve your speaking ability. It introduced me to a whole new group of people in Mannheim, all with the same goal in mind, who meet bi-weekly in a friendly and social way. It has helped to add another dimension to my life.

Being part of Mannheim Toastmaster club enriches my personal and professional life. The diverse, professional and friendly members make me feel at home. I open myself here to various challenges:  holding various speeches,  giving & receiving constructive feedbacks and growing my own leadership skills. That is fun and inspiring!

I have been a Toastmaster for the last 14 years, and the only thing that I regret is not having joined our club sooner.  I personally have profited immensely, both in my professional and private life. What I especially value in our club is the supportive, warmhearted atmosphere, making it a fun and safe place to learn and grow. Finally, as a senior member, I enjoy seeing the young professionals in the club growing into their full potential.
