Toastmasters and public speaking courses both have similar failings when you are dealing with most one-on-one conversation. Unless you are making a pitch of some kind, it doesn't help you at all with interpersonal exchanges.
If one has trouble with communicating cohesive verbal ideas, in general, then either thing will help that individual with any type of communication. Other than that, it is severely conditional when you can invoke things you've learned.
I'm game for conversation. I'm actually living with a conversation deficit, these days.
