Next Meetup

This is the beginning of anything you want! Your chance. Your choice.
The New Year has begun. You've set your goals ... or maybe not. No matter. Toastmasters is the optimum place to find resolve and put it into practice. You'll find a safe, supportive environment, just right for experimenting as you develop speaking and leadership skills. These are the skills we need on the job and in our communities. Starting February 2018, Center Berlin Toastmasters meet every 1st, 2nd and 3rd Tuesday of the month. Toastmasters is a non-religious, non-political, non-profit organization. Everyone is welcomed and treated with the same respect. We meet regularly to build our speaking and communication skills; to come together with great people; to fail gloriously and emerge wiser. At Center Berlin Toastmasters (http://centerberlin-toastmasters.de/) you'll find others who also believe in learning by doing. Our shared goal is to improve our ability to speak in public without letting fear take over. Growth as a speaker comes through plenty of stage time and more than a little courage. Developing a confident voice takes a willing attitude, continued practice, and the support of a group that wants you to succeed. That's us. That's Toastmasters. WHAT IS TOASTMASTERS? Since 1924, Toastmasters has been a leader in helping individuals improve their confidence and grow their communication skills. Our approach is very simple: - Toastmasters give constructive, supportive feedback to each other. - You improve through regular practice. - Basic manuals guide you in meeting fundamental speech writing objectives. Center Berlin Toastmasters is an English language public speaking and leadership club and part of the worldwide Toastmasters Organization (http://toastmasters.org/). Both native and non-native English speakers have the opportunity to improve their speaking, listening, and people skills through self-paced practice and supportive feedback. A FRIENDLY AND MUTUALLY SUPPORTIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT Do you dream of becoming a confident speaker? Do you want to enhance your ability to lead teams and manage projects? Interested in expanding your Emotional Intelligence? Want to get rid of nervous ticks? Yearn to develop a network of English language speakers? Whatever your aim is, Center Berlin Toastmasters provides a friendly and mutually supportive learning environment where you can safely achieve your personal goals. OUR MEETINGS ARE DIVIDED INTO THREE PARTS: - Prepared Speeches Toastmaster members prepare 5-7 minute speeches on a topic of their choice. In each speech they work on specific speech objectives - structure, word choice, vocal variety, body language. We build natural, convincing, authentic speeches step-by-step. - Impromptu Speeches Guests and members are asked to speak about a topic on the spot. These speeches are 1-2 minutes long. They are as much fun as they are challenging. - Evaluations A Toastmaster is designated at the beginning of the meeting to evaluate one of the prepared speeches. He/she emphasizes the strengths of the speech and offers suggestions for improvement. This feedback is always given in a friendly and positive manner. After the meeting there's socializing and small talk. Visit meetings as often as you like. We love guests - you are our best audience. There's no guest fee and no pressure to join. Starting February 2018, we meet every 1st, 2nd and 3rd Tuesday of the month in the Gemeindesaal at St. Lukas-Kirche. Doors open at 7:00. Come early to mingle. You'll quickly see how much fun this is. You might even surprise yourself.
