Message From the President

Welcome to the Darden Toastmasters website!

Communicating effectively is the single most important skill students need to succeed in business.  Darden is the perfect setting for students to refine their speaking abilities, get outside of their comfort zone, and learn to express themselves clearly in a variety of settings. Whether you find yourself being cold called by a professor in class, on the phone with Darden alumni, or in a high-pressure interview, you will be expected to present your best self.  The Toastmasters Club provides a forum where students can prepare and practice for the most intense communication settings. Club members receive friendly feedback helps them develop self confidence in public speaking and leadership settings. I encourage you to visit us and develop communication skills that will bring success to every facet of your life. Come find your voice!
