Batemans Bay Toastmasters evolves during Covid

As we all struggle to come to terms with the new normal, taking on a volunteer job which covers an area from the South Coast to the South Australian border and from Goulburn to the Victorian border, Noal Annabel from Batemans Bay Toastmasters Club has done just that. Usually, this would mean long trips on the road with lots of overnight stays.

However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this is now all covered via Zoom. Which, now means five or more zoom meetings during the week and often two on the weekend. Considering Zoom was not something Noal had heard of before COVID-19, he has quickly learned a lot about how to use the platform.

Batemans Bay Toastmasters hold twice-monthly meetings along with four different competitions each year. Typically held face to face now they will be via zoom. The area Noal looks after is called Monaro Division.

Members learn to improve their communication and leadership skills, with a web-based educational program made up of the opportunity to build up to 300 unique competencies, with 11 specialized learning paths to choose from all with online content, so that you can learn anytime, anywhere, real-world, transferable skills
