I am Otillia Maposa, a member of Engineers Toastmasters Club in Harare, Zimbabwe. I am an Actuarial specialist. My line of work revolves around explaining complex technical and statistical details to a diverse audience and this requires strong oral communication skills. I find Toastmasters to be an excellent space where there is relevant training in this regard.
I developed cold feet to continue when I did my icebreaker speech but I quickly remembered that Toastmasters is where I can get my communication skills effectively developed and sharpened.
My dream is to become an Actuary who is marketable as valuable business personnel, not just a technician.
