FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions


What's the format of your meetings?

Our regular meetings are broadly divided into three sections:

Prepared Speeches - around four speakers will give speeches to meet the goals of a specific speech project

Evaluations - each speech will be verbally evaluated by another club member to give the speakers useful feedback

Table Topics - an opportunity for members to give a short (1-2 minute) impromptu speech on a topic provided

How often will I get to speak?

It takes time to prepare a speech and there is some competition for speaking slots, but a highly-motivated member could potentially give a prepared speech every 4-6 weeks.

However, there are many other roles in the meeting (e.g. evaluator) which provide an opportunity to speak in front of an audience and members are encouraged to take on these supporting roles as well.

How much does it cost to join?

Our current membership fees are £100 for 12 months or £75 for 6 months. Membership includes a set of training manuals and a subscription to the monthly Toastmasters Magazine.
