    Toastmasters isn’t there to create professional speakers – simply speakers who are better than they used to be. Robotic speaking, or what I call ‘Speaker Man’ syndrome, is an issue. Partially a result of a set program, partially the peer-oriented feedback, which feeds on itself a bit. I’ve been in for 17 years, and find it’s great for improvement, testing, and networking. Gives me a chance to mentor others, as well.
