Hear John Speak at an Open House
Goodyear Toastmasters (ie. John's home club) will be hosting an open house at the Etobicoke Civic Centre on October 12, 2017. For a single evening, you will have the opportunity to come and hear John Andrews deliver the speech that took him up to this level. In addition, you will also discover how Toastmasters can benefit you, by giving you practical public speaking and leadership opportunities. At the end of the meeting you will have an opportunity to become a member yourself.
