This group is operated by Columbia University Toastmasters Club (1/11/2020).
Welcome to Columbia University Toastmasters! We are dedicated to helping people develop world-class public speaking and leadership skills. You don't need to be affiliated with Columbia University to join us. We are open to the general public. (Membership is for individuals 18 or older).
The world needs leaders. Leaders head families, coach teams, run businesses and mentor others. These leaders must not only accomplish, they must communicate. By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program. Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.
