Interviewer Note: “Trish was one of the first speakers that stood out to me since day one at Buddies. While I still wasn’t sure whether online Toastmasters was for me or not, having her as part of our meetings gave me more certainty that I’d be surrounded by people with the skills I was looking for and eventually grow more. Thanks for all your support and commitment to our club, Trish.”
