jd_riogov.jpgAs a quintessential GEEK, I am perfectly happy to sit in a dark corner writing code for ten hours with little or no human interaction. The problem with being such an introvert is that I have always felt like a fish out of water in social situations. Bad habits that seemed impossible to overcome such as staring off into space, squinting, and avoiding eye contact have almost dissapeared.. all thanks to Toastmasters!

Nuturing_0.jpgI initially learned about Toastmasters a few years back while completing my Masters degree in Engineering Management. Although engineers are usually known for their keen analytical and pragmatic skills, they are not known for their people and leadership skills. Northwestern University was excellent at teaching the skills needed to become a great leader, however knowing and doing are two entirely different things.
