Message from our President

Welcome to Initiative NY Toastmasters!

Public speaking is a skill. While it may come more naturally to some, like any other skill, public speaking requires practice in order to be our best. We would never expect to be a great soccer player, pianist, under water basket weaver, etc. without practicing…so why would we treat public speaking any differently?

Initiative NY Toastmasters is a corporate club open to anyone at IPG Mediabrands. It’s a safe place for you to come and practice public speaking amongst others in the agency who are also trying to improve themselves.

We all join for different reasons, whether it’s to become more self-aware, to build self-confidence, to practice a work-related presentation…there are lots of reasons to join. Don’t take my word for it? I challenge you to come to a meeting as our guest and see for yourself what could be waiting for you. You might just like what you hear!

I look forward to meeting you soon!

Maria C. Sacchetti, CL
President, Initiative NY Toastmasters
