Michigan Avenue Toastmasters

NOTE NEW LOCATION: THE DRAKE HOTEL    MAT Toastmaster meetings are learn-by-doing workshops in which members and guests hone their speaking and leadership skills in a friendly atmosphere. Participants practice and learn skills by filling a meeting role, ranging from giving a prepared speech or an impromptu one to serving as timer, evaluator or grammarian. Our average meeting length is 1 hour 45 minutes. WE MEET: Every Tuesday: 6:15 pm to 8:00 pm at the Drake Hotel 140 East Walton, Chicago, IL. WHY JOIN? We are known as the most social Toastmasters chapter in the city!  Our members consist of professionals that reside in the downtown area.   Come to a meeting as a guest and you will find out why! The diversity of our membership is what makes our club so dynamic, motivating, exciting and successful. We provide a supportive, positive learning environment so that every member has the opportunity to develop communication and leadership skills, which, in turn, foster self-confidence and personal growth. We also schedule events so our members can network and cultivate relationships.

    I'm a female by the way. Right now I'm living in Broadview and there is a Toast Masters there but since I work in West Loop this is more convenient. There's a lot on my plate now but I'd love if this meeting was a constant since I want to go into Theatre and need to improve my speech and how I present myself. This sounds like it would be good place to practice.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
