Montgomery County Government Toastmaster Club Helps You Develop Confidence When Speaking in Front of an Audience

Pictured (center right) Montgomery County Government Toastmaster Dana Burke instructs a class of eager children from the Kids Public Speaking Workshop. The class’s participants were made up of students from Wheaton Woods Elementary School and hosted at the Rock Creek Terrace Community Center on Veirs Mill Rd. Burke developed the curriculum and served as the primary instructor.
The idea of public speaking causes agony for many of us. While a little nervousness may be okay, if the thought of speaking publicly brings on paralyzing terror, you may want to look for support. Montgomery County Government Toastmasters Club 1510, a branch of Toastmasters International, provides a supportive safe environment to help polish skills, develop confidence and learn techniques to manage anxiety when speaking in public. The club is filled with warm, caring professionals who work to better themselves and assist other members.

The meetings are held the first and third Wednesday of each month from 12:10 to 1:10 p.m. in Room 225 of the Council Office Building located at 100 Maryland Avenue in Rockville. The meetings are open to the public. To learn more go to
