At a recent Toastmasters anniversary celebration a former member and small business owner spoke of how he found the Toastmasters experience so beneficial professionally that about 7 years ago he began a program where employees of his company would be given $1,000 for earning what is now called the “Competent Communicator” designation. He also agreed to pay the nominal fee for club dues. To this day, not a single employee has collected the prize. Reason? No one has completed the program. Is it that difficult?
