· Meetup members and guests are always welcome at the Hornet's Nest Toastmasters Club! You’ll like this warm, encouraging group a-buzz with diversity including an array of ages from 18 on up, a myriad of ethnicities and cultures, and all levels of speaking skills. At Hornet's Nest you’ll meet folks from varying backgrounds from students and professionals to stay-at-home dads and retirees – all with gifts to share.
You will learn and practice public speaking and leadership skills in a friendly and encouraging environment. Experienced professionals and beginning speakers alike can benefit from a practical, face-to-face learning program that includes club meetings, training seminars and speech contests. Each meeting provides an opportunity to practice conducting meetings, giving impromptu speeches, presenting prepared speeches and offering constructive evaluation.
Our meetings are held on the first and third Thursday of each month, except for holidays, beginning at 7:05 pm (the same time our Charlotte Hornets use to begin each game!).
You're welcome to visit anytime and you don't need to bring a thing.
Many of our club members are not on Meetup.com, so don't worry if there are few RSVP's. We are still meeting and we'll have a great turnout, especially if you are there!
