New Member Moment – Thabo J. Mthethwa

Have you ever been too shy to express yourself in front of people so much so that your heart beats so fast you even struggle to breathe? Yes, that was me before I joined Gaborone Toastmasters Club in Botswana. The thought of me giving a presentation at work or pitching a sales pitch was nerve wrecking since I couldn’t face people one on one nor stand in front of a group of people. I have seen a lot of improvement in my presentation because of the public speaking skills I am learning. It has moulded me to be confident and enabled me to well articulate myself.
