Mojca is a treasuer at our club /year 2019-2020). Below are her reasons for joining Toastmasters:
"I came for the public speaking, but stayed for the leadership...
I first heard of Ljubljana Toastmasters from Nina, a public speaking coach. She recommended I join to continuously practice public speaking. After doing a few speeches and taking up roles, I joined the board as a treasurer and organized a successful speaking marathon. Suddenly I realized Toastmasters is much more than just being on the stage and speaking. The backstage, which is leadership, is even more interesting – you can try out how you perform in different team roles, take on tasks that are a real challenge and even mentor newcomers. This proved to be an immense learning experience and helping the club to excel has been one of the great takeaways Toastmasters program offers. So much so, that I was one of the founders a new club, which will serve as a platform to boost your career – Toastmasters Business Club Slovenia. "
