    Love this quote — it best represents why I joined Toastmasters over Christmas. And I’m beginning to believe that eventually I will indeed be able to leave at least some people changed!

      Thanks very much for the comment, “Curious”. If are approaching public speaking with an attitude of wanting to change your audience, you will. Before you give any speech or presentation, always ask yourself two questions: What is my key message? Why should they care? Get the answers to those questions clear in your mind and change is on the way. Good luck!
