LAURA Brandt recently became the president of Currambine Toastmasters, replacing outgoing president David Hatton.
Under Mr Hatton’s leadership, the public speaking and leadership club received another award from the international organisation for its excellence in providing a world-class learning environment.
Ms Brandt has been a member of the club for a long time, and was elected president for the next 12 months with a new leadership team.
“The newly elected committee is an enthusiastic group of people who are committed to working with members to enhance the standing of the club and to provide an environment where new members will enjoy all the benefits that Toastmasters provide,” she said.
“In my years as a Toastmaster, I have seen incredible changes in people.
“New members are shy and unable to speak before an audience, but within a very short period of time their confidence grows and they develop the skills to stand before an audience and present with ease.”
Ms Brandt said guests could attend Currambine Toastmasters meetings for free, held on the first and third Wednesdays of each month at Currambine Community Centre.
