Jersey Desk/10143995

Rowan Toastmasters - chartered in 2017 - has announced that effective immediately they changed their name to "Speak to Lead - Gloucester County."

PITMAN, N.J. - JerseyDesk -- The club recently announced on its social media platforms: "Our new name encompasses the two pillars of Toastmasters - Speaking and Leadership, as well as our location, Gloucester County, NJ. It signals a new beginning for our club as we emerge from a very challenging past 18 months."

"Speak to Lead is one of only two Toastmasters clubs in Gloucester County, a county with a growing population of over 300,000 residents" said Club President Jeff Pickens. "There is plenty of potential for growth. We provide a supportive, positive, non-judgmental environment where members have the opportunity to develop their communication and leadership skills."

More and more developing leaders are realizing that the ability to present in a public setting - both in-person and virtually -  requires confidence and experience. " 'Practice makes perfect' applies to our bi-weekly meetings," states Vice President of Education Don Netz.
