Looking to develop speaking and leadership skills? Win that job interview? Ignite your career?

Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Our membership is 270,000 strong. These members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 13,000 clubs that make up our global network of meeting locations.

Membership in Toastmasters is one of the greatest investments you can make in yourself. At $36 every six months, it is also one of the most cost-effective skill-building tools available anywhere. Individual clubs may require extra nominal payments for club dues.

District 4 Toastmasters comprises about 230 clubs from San Francisco to Monterey! Each Toastmasters club provides a safe and supportive environment to practice communication and leadership skills. We will post significant Toastmasters events in this Meetup where you can drop in and meet other Toastmasters and see how they have benefited from being Toastmasters. Speech contests, District conferences and Club Open Houses are opportunities to experience Toastmasters.

How Does It Work?

A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere.

There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success.

Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop skills related to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedure.

Members learn communication skills by working in the Competent Communication manual, a series of 10 self-paced speaking assignments designed to instill a basic foundation in public speaking.
