Speakers Club of the Insurance Institute of Ontario
Are you looking to improve your public speaking abilities? Would you like to increase your effectiveness in presenting ideas?
For more than 80 years, the Speakers Club has been helping members ease their way into public speaking and develop their skills in a supportive, professional environment. Speak when you’re ready—even if you just introduce yourself—then progress at your own pace. And it’s a great way to meet new people in your industry.
Join other insurance industry professionals in a dynamic environment as a speaker’s education unfolds, followed by engaging opportunities for debate, presentations, and impromptu speaking.
We meet at 5:45 p.m. on the third Monday each month, September through May, at the offices of DGA Careers, 150 King Street West, Suite 805, in downtown Toronto. See our schedule for the 2018–2019 season:
