Are you glossophobic? Do you have gloss-o-pho-bia? What is it? Glossophobia is the fear of public speaking. You are not alone if you do fear public speaking. I have and greater than 75% of our population has had it. It’s not easy for most people to stand up and talk in front of people whether it’s 5, 50 or 500! Most people want to be better communicators but don’t know where to start.
How have I and more than 300,00 people worldwide conquered this fear? Toastmasters.
The Next Level Toastmasters Club (www.7160293.toastmastersclubs.org) invites you to be our guest to breakdown communication barriers while not breaking your budget!

“Toastmasters has helped me to not only become a more confident speaker and leader but also to find a new purpose in life” says Dr Diane Piela, co-founder and Secretary of The Next Level Toastmaster’s Club. “You see, I became a disabled Family Medicine Physician in 2004 after 20 years of working with patients in Rochester, New York. I loved medicine and helping my patients lead healthier lives. However, I was diagnosed suddenly with Multiple Sclerosis and Cerebral Hemorrhage which ultimately led me to make a heart wrenching decision to take a medical retirement. I couldn’t mentally or physically be a physician anymore. With lots of personal development and growth through many years, I found myself in Toastmasters. As I developed the skills of becoming a more confident speaker and leader……I found a new purpose in life…… Still helping people but in a different way.
Now I am an inspirational speaker and published author. Through my speaking,
I inspire and motivate people to
- Never Give Up
- Not be limited by a disability or challenge
- Make that challenge or disability the beginning of the next journey.”
Dr Diane Piela says,” So many people suffer medical, financial, relationship or job related challenges and become lost, giving up too easily. Through speaking, I inspire people to continue in life, discover new skills and core reasons to live. I know because I have been there.”
As a professional speaker, Diane has spoken at the American Association of University Women in Kona, Hawaii, as well as The Kona Brain Injury Support Group.

Mentor of The Next Level Toastmasters Club, Randy Powell is a Professional Speaker, Published Author and Certified Envision Success Coach from Temecula. (www.randypowellspeaks.com)
