The Coghlin Companies sponsored Toastmasters Club, known as the Otis Street Orators (OSO), recently celebrated their one year anniversary!

Who are the Otis Street Orators?

The Otis Street Orators are a certified Toastmasters Organization. Toastmasters International is an educational organization aimed to help people become more confident speakers, communicators, and leaders. The members of OSO are a proud and passionate group, who work together to improve their public speaking and leadership skills through practice, peer feedback, and evaluation. The members of the group step out of their comfort zones and evolve their ability to sell their thoughts and beliefs, and perform better on their feet. Practicing these skills can help in various professional situations, including meeting with customers, design reviews and discussions with their fellow Caring Associates. The club is also a great way for members to learn more about their peers and grow as a team, as they are encouraged to share details about their personal lives in many of the speeches. The group is led by Keith Ruenheck, a Principal Software Engineer at Coghlin Companies and includes members from engineering, quality, sales, operations, and the local community. This growing group includes a wide mix of people and personalities, and welcomes new guests to attend with open minds and smiling faces!

Toastmasters International has over 350,000 members in more than 16,000 clubs in 124 counties, and Coghlin Companies is proud to be part of such a great organization! We encourage all of our Caring Associates to consider checking out a meeting if they want to further develop and practice their public speaking skills.

Congratulations on your first year Otis Street Orators!
