New Member Moment – Esther Kanduza

For some time I had been hearing about “Toastmasters” and I surmised that it was all about giving great toasts. It wasn’t until I heard a radio interview with the former President of Madison Toastmasters in Lusaka, Zambia, that I grew more interested and joined that particular club in October 2020. This came at a time in my career when I needed to hone my presentation skills as I was appointed to a new leadership position. Toastmasters has provided me with a platform and an opportunity to work on my fear of public speaking and network with leaders who are readily available to provide advice. The path I chose was Presentation Mastery and I am yet to complete it, but I have already gained confidence in presenting and I now understand more about leadership. It’s been such a wonderful journey and I learn more with each meeting.
