I presented a demo today for a large chunk of my development work that's nearing completion. It seemed to be received well enough, but reflecting on my communication and style I'm left disappointed. I used to give talks a lot more frequently, and relative to what I recall of that time I feel like I've atrophied considerably.

I used to be a member of Toastmasters and my skills have atrophied as well. Use it or lose it,

@oranje So it seems. I'm tempted to start pushing myself back into those situations again.

I haven't been involved for over 30 years but #Toastmasters is a fantastic venue for developing and honing public speaking skills.
