What we're about
We are a local club of Toastmasters International, a world leader in communication and leadership development. While our group is a comfortable 15-20 members strong, we draw on the resources and experience of an organisation that unites 280,000 people in over 10,000 clubs across 116 countries. Every Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which all participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in an exceptionally supportive atmosphere. There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, we evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the programme’s success. Club members also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, chair meetings and develop skills related to conference procedure. There is a great sense of communal support, and everybody progresses at their own pace. Visiting our club meetings is free and without any obligation. If you feel game you may also take part in our impromptu speeches. Be assured that visitors are always very welcome, at any of our meetings. Experience for yourself the practical way in which we learn to become better and more successful communicators. And meet our club members who include teachers, librarians, scientists, IT and business professionals. We are sure you will feel right at ease in our friendly club environment.
