Public speaking has long been one of my passions. Speaking has always been an important part of my work and in 2009 I joined Toastmasters International to see how I could increase my capabilities in this field. I’ve been an active member ever since, first in the International Geneva Toastmasters Club and now at Esprit de Corps in Frankfurt. I’ve reached Advanced Communicator Silver (ACS) level and am about to reach Advanced Leader Bronze (ALB). Earlier this year I decided to embark on a new project: to set up an Advanced Toastmasters Club.
