What is Toastmasters?

Members gain self-confidence, ease of communication and personal growth through the meetings.

Our typical club meetings are made of up three sections:

Prepared manual speeches on self-selected topics designed to focus on specific speaking skills such as speech structure, gestures or vocal variety

Evaluations of the prepared speeches, as well as every role performed during the club meetings

Impromptu speaking, known as Table Topics

 

This is done through:

- Using time-tested methods to build speaking and leadership skills

- Focusing on areas of interest in our self-paced curriculum. The Competent Communication  manual covers 10 projects including: Icebreaker speech (talking about yourself), organizing your speech, getting to the point, using your body to communicte effectively, persuading with power and inspiring others.

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.
