If you think Toastmasters is just a bunch of stuffy people sitting around, waiting to lash out at your every word, think again!
(Check out one of our friendly members, Greg, on HOW to prepare a speech!)
We're a spirited and fun group. Even though we meet early, most of us will say it's the best part of our day. And often the best part of our week!
Visit us and see for yourself! We meet every Thursday morning from 7:00 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.
Worried about speaking in front of people?
WE CAN HELP!

Who is this for?
Toast of the Towers is a great place for salespersons, managers, experts, coaches, entrepreneurs, business professionals and professional speakers to get more comfortable with speaking in public, to polish leadership skills and to network, share resources and exchange ideas.
Whether you are an experienced speaker or you're just getting started, we welcome you!
What to expect
We start on time and end on time, and during that hour we get a lot done! You will usually experience two speakers with prepared speeches that are around 5-7 minutes long. The speakers and topics vary from meeting to meeting.
Here are a couple of examples:
Teri - showing us how she does worm composting
Joe - in an off-the-cuff response to Teri's Worm Composting
See? We don't bite and we actually have a lot of fun!
We also have a time for something called "Table Topics". Table Topics gives members a chance to practice their off-the-cuff or impromptu speaking. The kind of speaking that we do most of the time! Finally, members provide thoughtful evaluations of the prepared speeches so speakers learn how they might continue to improve.

Don't Get Lost - Here's How to Find Us!
We love visitors! But some have told us they get lost. Here's some further directions:
Once you get to the Plymouth Corporate Center it's easiest to park on the EAST side (facing Zenium/Northwest Blvd - Entrance says EAST). You can park in the visitor parking.
Go in the main doors on the EAST SIDE and follow the hallway beyond the Meritain office entrance until you get to the Gift Shop.
Take a LEFT at the Gift Shop and go BEYOND the coffee station.
Ahead of you on the left you'll see the James J Hill Conference Room.
If the door is closed feel free to come on in, grab a seat, relax and enjoy the meeting. We always start and end on time but we don't want you to miss anything!
Someone will visit with you after the meeting to answer any questions.
We look forward to meeting you!
