From London Victorians Toastmasters club to the global stage

Camila Toro joined London Victorians Toastmasters club with the aim of strengthening her public speaking skills in a supportive and ambitious environment. Just under a year later, not only has she achieved her goal, but she has also landed herself a public speaking slot at IsolaTED Talks, a new initiative inspired by Ted Talks. We’re so proud to see one of our members go on to do something so wonderfully inspiring!

Camila says: “Toastmasters has made me a confident speaker, able to take on challenges I never thought I could before. Recently, I got invited to speak at IsolaTED Talks – a UK initiative to raise awareness of loneliness during the lockdown.

“The opportunity was the perfect scene to practice all of the skills I’ve been able to harvest every week at London Victorians. After crafting the structure and narrative of my talk, I practiced in front of the club to get feedback from all levels of speakers and craft and improve it even more.

“I am very happy with an outcome which evidences what belonging to a hard-working, safe space and a constantly evolving group can offer you.”
