What we're about

Whether your goal is to overcome a fear of public speaking, take your presentation skills from good to great, or strengthen your leadership skills through leadership programs and networking, Toastmasters is the place to be.

Stop in and visit a Fireside Toastmasters Club meeting, free of cost, and see how Toastmasters can help you.

Fireside Toastmasters is the perfect place to improve your communication skills, develop the leadership skills you desire, and increase your ability to influence others through confident public speaking.

Priding ourselves on diversity, we welcome adults of all walks of life, all ages, and from all neighboring communities.

At Toastmasters, new members learn the art of public speaking by completing the Competent Communicator Manual. This manual is included as part of your membership and provides you with your first ten speech assignments, all carefully structured to ensure your success. Each speech features basic speaking skills such as how to organize a speech, how to use props or visual aids, how to use voice inflections, and how to persuade or inspire your audience.

Advanced members who have completed their first manual have many choices from the Advanced Series of manuals. One example is the Interpersonal Communications series which teaches you how to be a good negotiator, diffuse difficult situations, sell products, and make cold calls.

Table Topics is a fun segment of every meeting that helps participants build skills for thinking on their feet. These are impromptu opportunities to speak for 1-2 minutes on a given subject.

Besides mastering the art of public speaking, we also have plenty of time to chit-chat, network, and develop great friendships.

Come and join us sometime, so you can experience our friendly environment and see if Fireside Toastmasters Club is right for you.
