The "Toronto People Who Stutter, Toastermasters Club" is a group of stutterers, ESL students, and others who appreciate a friendly place to practice social conversation and public speaking by following an informal Toastmasters format.
Tonight is one of our regular meetups held on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month in downtown Toronto, Metro Hall, King and John streets, in a room on the 3rd floor.
The room number for each week is posted on the Canadian Stuttering Association website - http://www.stutter.ca/find-a-group - and is listed on bulletin boards in the building foyer and at the 3rd floor front desk. (Please note that another Toastmasters group meets there too, ours is the one listed as "TPWS" or "Toronto People Who Stutter.")
Our meetings are free of charge; they follow a very relaxed social Toastmasters format but do start promptly at 6:15pm. They last about 60-90 minutes; usually 5 – 12 people attend, and newcomers and guests are warmly welcomed. (No need to speak at all until you feel comfortable there!)
Members volunteer to fill the various Toastmaster roles. The group was founded in 2003 by Greg O'Grady and taken over in 2005 by Lisa Wilder who's run it ever since; it was Greg who organized our free use of the room at Metro Hall.
Drop-ins are welcome but the host does appreciate an RSVP so as to line-up volunteers for key roles, and please do text or call if you are delayed or have an emergency!
Looking forward to seeing you there!
Peter and Lisa
