WANT TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT MAIDENHEAD SPEAKERS?
Club President: Mike Jones
Mike Jones: I first heard of Toastmasters from a colleague at work who mentioned it during an annual company sales day in 2014 to kick off the new financial year. My job as a Sales Consultant means I am required to talk confidently, clearly and concisely about our solutions and services. To this end I signed up at Maidenhead Speakers Club for the very first meeting of 2015. My public speaking and leadership skills have come on in leaps and bounds since joining Toastmasters. I would recommend it to anyone with no hesitation.
VP Education: Tom Hostetler
Tom Hostetler: I used to speak regularly to groups of work colleagues and employees, but I always felt that I could do much better at it if only I practiced. Then several years ago the push for ‘home working’ came into vogue, and I became a ‘home worker’. Over time I lost my confidence and presenting skills in speaking in front of a group. I joined Toastmasters in 2015 to help me regain that confidence and take my public speaking skills to a completely new level. Participating in the Maidenhead Speakers Club is a big step in that direction.

Immediate Past President: Chris Boden
Chris Boden: I joined Toastmasters in 2007 to overcome my shyness and help me to run large meetings at work. In the years since I’ve become a confident and successful speaker, giving talks to hundreds of people in professional situations and even trying out stand up comedy and improv. I love helping new people get started developing as speakers and seeing them develop and grow. In my spare time I’m a consultant electrical engineer in the Power Industry.
