Message from Area 56 Director

Since joining Toastmasters over 3 years ago, I have personally recognized the benefits of such an amazing and powerful education program!  Not only has my speaking ability improved; my leadership skills, wider interpersonal skills, and overall confidence have all seen huge leaps!

I am looking forward to continuing to develop my leadership skills through the privilege of serving as Area 56 Director for 2018 – 2019 and working with the phenomenal club executives in the area.

With gratitude

Gillian Sheldon
