Brigita is the first president of our club (2019-2020). Here are her reasons for being a Toastmaster and serving as a board member:
"Warm and relaxed yet professional atmosphere at meetings give me a chance to practice and enhance communication and leadership skills. The worldwide recognized educational system offers many challenges and learning opportunities. To serve as a board officer gives me the opportunity to shape and develop the Toastmasters Community in Slovenia and to help members get the most of what Toastmasters is offering in order to achieve their personal and career goals. Being part of the Toastmasters International also enables me to extend my network. Like-minded people with different backgrounds, experiences and different ‘modus operandi’ from all over the world expanded my horizons and agility.
Toastmasters is a great experience and it boosted my professional career as well. I would recommend it to everyone who would like to change, grow and lead. Hope to see you soon in one of the next Toastmasters events."
UPDATE July 2021: Brigita is an Area Director (Area F4) 2021/22.
