It's a friendly, supportive environment where members get the chance to prepare and deliver speeches, as well as build off-the-cuff speaking skills. We follow a well-developed structure and our meetings contain lots of mentoring and feedback from fellow members.

      Hi Gayna, sorry but I'm giving this week a miss, leaving for London earlier than I'd thought so I've got lots to do - I'll definitely be there next week though (probably jet lagged!) so can we meet up then? :) xx

      Just to let you know ladies I'm not there next week (7th) as I'm away visiting family. But I will be there the following week (14th) so if it does get delayed I'm in! ;-)

    9 months ago I presented in London about "Management Teams." I was invited back to deliver the same 30' slot this morning.

    My newly acquired Toastmaster friends, thank you. Your guidance, examples, coaching and encouragement is working. Lots of little defects in my delivery were avoided. Here's the most odd thing: exactly the same content but I ran for 5' longer as I had slowed down, and added pauses.

    Huge thanks to everyone for your support last night. I found myself unexpectedly very emotional after my speech, and was very grateful for the wonderful 'safe space' created at these meetings. Mwah! xxx
