Toastmasters - Public Speaking & Leadership

The Toastmasters program offers so many benefits ... overcome the fear of speaking in front of a group, perfect your presentations, learn to listen effectively, learn to evaluate and coach others, learn to speak concisely and cut out filler words, gain confidence, uncover and develop your talents, become a stronger, more confident leader, gain interviewing skills, advance your career, hone your skills of persuasion, learn to use nonverbal communication, make friends, mentor and help others grow.

At Toastmasters we improve our speaking and leadership skills while having fun in a  no-pressure atmosphere. There is no teacher, just a structured environment where members evaluate one another's presentations and give feedback.

Meeting participants also develop impromptu speaking skills by giving 1-2 minute talks on our table topics. We develop other communication, thinking, and leadership skills through conducting meetings, listening, evaluating, facilitating, timekeeping, and coaching.

Members complete a series of 10 self-paced speaking assignments from the Competent Communicator manual, designed to teach the basics of public speaking.

Members also learn leadership skills by taking on various meeting roles and working through our Competent Leadership manual. There are no classes or lectures about leadership, we give each member the opportunity to lead, and offer mentoring to help.

We currently have 35 members, and growing!  There are usually around 20 people at each meeting.  Guests are always welcome!!  Please RSVP so we know you're coming!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
