Brad Jacobs — Master of Ceremonies/Toastmaster

After a year of dabbling, he set his mind to improving and he committed to attend a Toastmasters meeting each week. Over the past 7 years, Brad has given keynotes for hundreds of people, won dozens of speech contests, ministered several weddings, and gotten promotions and job offers because of the skills he developed here in Toastmasters.
