Carrie Klinge, Sergeant-At-Arms
I have been a member of Toastmasters since November 2015. Toastmasters has helped me become comfortable in front of an audience whether that audience is one or many people. I have enjoyed honing my speaking skills and being in a group that has the same goals.
I work at Emerson Process Management Fisher Controls. I enjoy being a mom and wife, playing and watching sports, reading, and knitting/crocheting.
I thoroughly enjoy being a member of Crosswinds Toastmasters.
Toastmasters is, in my opinion, the BEST way to improve Communication and Leadership skills. The club provides a VERY supportive and positive atmosphere.
Zach Ray, Co-Club President
He says: “I joined Toastmasters because I wanted to practice honing arguments and quick thinking on a regular basis. I like public speaking and wanted to have a place to communicate and be understood.
Crosswinds Toastmasters has provided me an opportunity to improve my metaphors and word pictures useful to help communicate with others.”
David is interested in the relationship of politics, religion, and human nature. Many of his speeches attempt to explore these topics but he also talks about stories from his life.
Clyde Eisenbeis, DTM
Clyde has been a member of Toastmasters since 1980 ... Eastwinds, Prairie Winds, Turtle Mountain Winds, and Crosswinds.
He likes Toastmasters because it attracts enthusiastic people, is fun, and is entertaining.
Toastmasters is well known for improving speaking skills. Less well know are the exceptional "working with people skills " and "conflict resolution skills".
