Tech Talks Toastmasters Club meets every Friday, noon-1pm
Want to improve your communication skills? Gain experience as a leader? Reduce your anxiety when presenting? The new “Tech Talks” Toastmasters club at Caltech can help! Tech Talks welcomes all people interested in or working within STEM fields. The club is an inclusive and supportive environment to practice communication skills used in academic research and the scientific industry. Tech Talks meetings are based on Toastmasters’ format of prepared speeches, impromptu speaking, and constructive evoluations. We have our club meetings every Friday from 12pm-1pm on Caltech Campus in Beckman Behavioral Biology room B180 - just walk down the stairs adjacent to the western lilypad pond!
