Become a better public speaker & expand your network with Toastmasters

Do you want to feel more confident as a speaker? Ace that job interview? Improve your communication skills in general? Then look no further and visit Toastmasters Karlsruhe :-).

We - a group of around 20 public speaking aficionados from all over the world - meet on every 1st, 3rd and 5th Monday of the month from[masked] at the Luise-Riegger-Haus to improve our public speaking skills in a friendly, supportive, and relaxed atmosphere. We gather at 19.15 and the program starts at 19.30.

During our meetings,three or four club members give a prepared speech of 5 to 10 Minutes each. The other club members assess these speeches and provide valuable hints on improving them. In this way we learn by doing and helping each other. Besides, we have a round of spontaneous speeches which is always a lot of fun and helps you to think on our feet.

Guests are always welcome. As a guest, you can just sit and watch or actively participate in a meeting role if you like.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or just step by at the meetings.
Best regards

    Hi! I have been wanting to come for a while, but was in an Ausbildungs program, and it never fit. This one also does not fit (I have a client, I need to block it off sooner!) but I will keep trying!

    Question: how long are the extemporaneous talks (each)? This will help me think about some suitable potential topics.

      Hi Deborah, the improvised speeches are 1-3 min. I used to think a lot about the improvised speeches. I recommend just to relax and talk about whatever comes to your mind first. There will be a "table topics master" who has prepared questions the speaker can respond to. So no need to prepare at all .

    This idea of improving public speaking seems great and I would like to attend this for the very first time. Looking forward to it.
