Hi there, my name's Wang and I currently work as a consultant in Edmonton, AB. Back in 2007, I joined Toastmasters and I believe this has changed the trajectories of both my personal and professional lives since. I have been a Toastmaster for 5+ years (with small breaks in between) and have been working in a professional capacity for 6+ years.
Whether it is speaking engagements with friends (e.g., wedding MC), speech contests (multiple speech contest winner at club and area level in Toastmasters), professional presentations (numerous work presentations) or even Pecha Kucha, I have successfully delivered many speeches in my time. I know how to create good speeches (having created over 50 original speeches); I know how to deliver good speeches and I know how to evaluate and critique speeches - all of this experience means that I can help provide you with the tips and tricks to succeed in your next speech.
