Our weekly meeting run via a strict schedule.
• 12:00 Opening. By Club President and today’s Toastmaster.
• Jester. Lighten up our spirits.
• Introduction to roles. We actually have time checkers and ahh counters.
• Speech 1 &2 . A prepared speech, one of us needs to do for their training.
• Table Topics. Fun and fast, impromptu speech exercise, for anyone to join
• Evaluation of speaker 1 &2, done by a fellow members. To practice giving feedback.
• General Evaluation. What did we learn today?
• 12:59 Closing of the meeting.

Our members sign up for roles. Members follow a training program and schedule their assignments in their own pace. The prepared speech is one example, but learning how to lead the meeting, keep track of time or give feedback is also part of an assignment and journey.

Training programs are personal. You can choose to develop your storytelling skills, your leadership skills, coaching or PR skills etc. The fact that everyone follows their own training program makes that the topics for speeches are always different, and therefore engaging.
Our feedback is constructive and helpful for everyone, not just for the one who speeches.


Toastmasters is an international Non-Profit program. Each club has their own identity. Because we are located at the Tektronix Campus, with lots of businesses around us, and we meet during daytime, our club members are mostly working professionals. But everyone is welcome. Becoming a member costs 57$ per 6 month and gives you access to a training program of your choice. Feel free to first explore by visiting us a few times a guest.
