Vancouver Toastmasters host open house

The Vancouver Toastmasters group, CHATR-BLOCKS, exclusively for design professionals held an open house and workshop on March 22.

After another successful event, the group can proudly say that it has grown to 24 members from its original eight. Although Toastmasters helps even the bravest of people overcome their fear of public speaking, it's about more than that. It's also about persuasive speaking and thinking on your feet - important skills that designers need to have in order to confidently get the clients to understand and see their vision.

The members of CHATR-BLOCKS practised these fundamentals, and will continue to meet every Tuesday evening at the Teknion showroom. Anyone who is interested in attending can contact Tracey Conn at
