Members of Nevada County Toastmasters organizations, such as the Empire Toastmasters above, will host "Public Speaking Tips" from 2 to 4 p.m. on Feb. 24 at Madelyn Helling Library in Nevada City. Along with tips on how to improve listening and speaking skills, attendees will hear personal testimonials from people who have benefited from Toastmasters' meetings and events. According to Psychology Today, surveys of people's fears commonly show public speaking at the top of the list.
