To learn more about Toastmasters International organization, we invite you to visit their website at www.toastmasters.org.

Our meetings are a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a friendly atmosphere. There is no instructor. 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.
