What we're about

If you want to improve your communication for any reason - please join us for a meeting. The Gopher Toastmasters Club is the right place for you. Public speaking requires practice, an education plan, and a supportive environment. Toastmasters is a great place to practice your speaking skills. Many of today's successful and respected leaders need to know how to communicate to others. By using your public speaking skills to effectively convey who you are and what you're about, you can expand your circle of influence while making a great impression and/or advancing your career. As the club has been around since 1941, there is a long history of Toastmasters excellence. All are welcome to our Toastmasters meetings the first and third Mondays of each month at 6 pm. Come visit us at the Hennepin County Government Center, in the Employee Development Classroom (EDC), room A110. We are located near the Government Plaza light rail stop. Contact us with ANY questions. See you at our next meeting.
