As I sit here in the lobby of the Bakersfield Marriott, waiting for hospitality night to kick off the event, I wonder if Toastmasters have a natural edge in networking.
- Toastmasters are good communicators. Networking takes excellent communications.
- Toastmasters are excellent, trained listeners. Networking takes good listening skills.
- But are Toastmasters extroverts? Put on the brakes! I suspect many Toastmasters are actually introverts. But that's okay - you don't have to be an extrovert to be a good networker.
