Toastmasters is all about public speaking and improving your leadership skills. Toastmasters International exists since the 1920s. The first Dutch club was established in 2002 in Amsterdam. The first Utrecht club was in 2006 and to date there are 3 clubs in Utrecht. 2 English speaking and 1 Dutch speaking club.
You can use this MeetUp page to track upcoming meetings for U-Speak! the Tuesday night (English speaking) club as well as the details for Domstad (the Dutch speaking club). Domstad meet on a Monday evening at the Kargadoor on the Oude Gracht.
Toastmaster meetings at 'U-Speak!' and 'Domstad Toastmasters' are fun! Some of the participants give short prepared speeches, which are later evaluated by other club members. A typical meeting would also include short impromptu speeches, where everybody gets a chance, including guests, if they wish. In this way, we create a safe and fun environment to practice public speaking.
Guests are always welcome! So, come join us! U-speak! Toastmasters(English) meetings take place on Tuesdays (check the calendar for details and location).
Domstad Toastmasters(Nederlands) meetings take place on Mondays(check the calendar for details and location).
Please note, on average between 15-20 people attend a typical club evening. The numbers of people attending on Meetup are not reflective of the actual number of people attending on a night, so please do come and join us! While it is quite a structured evening, with an agenda and even someone in the role of timer, it is still a lot of fun and we can be sure that you will laugh and learn! :)
