Event Description


Have you ever wanted to practice an important speech or presentation on an actual audience before the “big day”? If so, read on...

Public speaking is regularly cited as one of the most important skills any professional can have, and while there are plenty of ways to improve one's speech writing and learn the theory behind public speaking, there is nothing like getting feedback based on an actual performance in front of a group of people whose opinion you care about.

At the Anderson "Toastmasters" group, you will have the chance to practice your

  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Elevator pitch
  • Keynote speech
  • Panel speaker answers
  • Anything else that falls under “business verbal communication”
In front of a group of fellow MBAs, where you will receive coaching and direction in a supportive environment that is just high pressure enough to help you get over any public speaking fears you may have.

Longtime Toastmasters and Anderson alumni, Alegre Ramos, and Steve Yu will guide the quarterly events. We are looking for a group of alumni who want to commit to attending these ongoing events regularly (it’s the only way to become really proficient.)

Light meal included.
