|How do I count the ways in which Competitive Communicators has contributed to my growth as a Toastmaster and person? First, this club has made me feel accepted and was welcomed from the very first meeting. Second, I feel respected and depended on in a positive way. I have been challenged and assisted in helping this club present it’s very 1st online speech contest. I felt like I have been a contributing member. I’ve been called on to be President Pro Tem in a few cases that Paul was not able to make it, this helped me see myself as a competent leader :). Third, I truly feel friendships have formed between myself and members from all over the world, I really get to experience the International part of Toastmasters on a weekly basis, not just during World Champion Speech Contest once a year.|
|With being a full-time research student, I found this online club the most appropriate for me. I like the friendly and encouraging environment of Competitive Communicators (CC) club. I remember when I was giving my first three speeches, a mentor from the club was assigned to me and she guided me helpfully. Wherever you are, you can always join CC Toastmasters. Even if you are not yet ready to join, you can attend CC meetings as a guest. The most interesting thing for me is that I don’t have to worry about changing my club mates every time I switch to a new place.|
|CCTM affords me an additional opportunity to practice my speaking skills, but with the twist of technology. This twist challenges me to continuously improve upon my computer weaknesses. I am learning a great deal and becoming increasingly comfortable before my online audience. CCTM extends the boundaries of my community and allows me to meet people across the world. I feel the flavor of our international club and expectantly look forward to each Tuesday.|
|Competitive Communicators is quite an amazing club insofar as it lends itself to not just the local community but embraces modern internet technology and delivers the club atmosphere to the world.
Just think about it! With this technology we could have a Toastmasters Club in space! And believe me our speakers are incredible and some are out of this world. Boasting and hosting speakers from all over the world it has definitely become a gem in the Toastmasters World. Having been an IT Technical Support Engineer background and meeting Paul online I have truly been amazed in this club. Not just in the technology but in its integrity as well.
|Competitive Communicators is a distinguished, diverse club that offers opportunities to network with others in Toastmasters. Our members are diverse, and have different levels of experience within the Toastmasters brand. Our President of the club is committed, and enjoys the Toastmasters experience. I can’t think of a better leader. He is such a giving person, and is actively engaged in the District, and the online world of Toastmasters. He is a funny guy, and that makes our club a little crazy, wild and fun. The online toastmasters clubs help you to elevate your style of speech. Speaking on camera is a different experience that can’t be explained. You will have to try it for your self. Be our guest and visit our online club.|
|“You Compete with yourself!” is a slogan of Competitive Communicators (CCTM) and that made me decide to be a member. Boy am I glad I joined! Whether we like it or not, life IS a competition. But it is NOT a race against others. It is a competition only against ourselves so that we can tap into our unrealized potentials. CCTM members are “Walk the Talk” people; competitive with themselves but supportive of each other. Join us; you will surprise yourself — That’s I can say for sure. I am a proud member of Competitive Communicators.|
