Jetpacks and Jumpships – ToastMasters

We are pleased to announce that the Worlds of Wonder club was featured on Toastmasters International magazine Toastmasters Magazine in the February issue.

This write-up is part of the article titled “What’s Your Specialty?”.

The story talks about specialty clubs that connect like-minded members to pursue their passions and become better speakers at the same time. The Worlds of Wonder Toastmasters club is dedicated to Science Fiction and Fantasy in books, film, and TV.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

“You already know that Toastmasters helps you become a better speaker and leader; you may not know that it can also help you become a better photographer or chef. Clubs with a special area of focus provide opportunities for like-minded members to broaden their skills and further their particular passions, from business books to science fiction, from photography to food. The following four uniquely themed clubs put their own special spin on the Toastmasters experience.


Fairly recently, in a galaxy nearby, a committed group of sci-fi and fantasy fans formed a Toastmasters group and began meeting online. So begins one of Worlds of Wonder Toastmasters’ publicity posts, and you can almost hear the epic introduction music playing. That “committed group of fans” includes Bill Zain and Mike O’Neil, the club’s co-sponsors. “Mike contacted me to explore the idea. He knows that I love science fiction,” recalls Zain. “We started inviting people,” and the rest is history. The club, which is in the process of chartering, meets weekly to improve leadership and communication skills while discussing books, movies, and television shows in the science fiction and fantasy genres.”
