TOASTMASTERS Internationals will change its path almost a century after it started to meet modern challenges.

“Since 1924, Toastmasters International has helped millions of people improve their confidence and leadership through the art of public speaking,” Toastmasters Currambine public relations vice president Sam Walsham said.

“Now nearing a centenary of helping others, Toastmasters is undergoing massive change to ensure the organisation remains exceptionally relevant to the challenges of modern personal and professional life.

“Known as ‘Pathways’, this new program is the most radical change to Toastmasters since its inception.

“Members will still gather at their respective clubs and enjoy the supportive, fun and engaging atmosphere Toastmasters is famous for.

“However, Pathways allows members to customise their Toastmasters goals to suit their personal and professional ambitions.”

Mr Walsham said on November 15, Pathways ambassador Samith Pich presented the program to the Currambine club, and members could start using it from December 6.

“Members raved about the increased flexibility, relevance and learning experience Pathways has to offer,” he said.

“In addition to this, Pathways takes advantage of modern technology enabling members to track their progress and access resources at any time on their smart phones, tablets or computers.”

The club meets on the first and third Wednesdays of each month at the Currambine Community Centre.
