What we're about

We are a group of ordinary people who come together two to three times a month to improve our public speaking and leadership skills.

Our aim is to empower individuals to become confident public speakers and leaders. Public Speaking is one of the hardest things for people to do, let alone become brilliant at. Our clubs provide an encouraging environment where members can develop their skills quickly and to a high standard.

Members develop their skills to the highest standard to:

- Deliver engaging, powerful presentations at work

- Give humorous or heartfelt speeches at personal events

- Become great leaders by gaining the skills to influence others

- Become stronger personalities by eliminating social fears

- Deal with more situations powerfully by responding effectively

This group consists of clubs serving Inner Brisbane and the CBD.

We are part of Toastmasters International, which is a non-profit educational corporation. Its mission is to improve communication and leaderships skills of its members and in general. Mainly, this works to 'improve public speaking skills' but there is also a potent leadership and management aspect to the organisation if you aspire to reach that level.

Keep an eye out for our sister group - Brisbane Northern Suburbs Public Speaking Meetup!

Gain confidence with Impromptu Speaking

Grand Central Hotel, Dining Car Room

It doesn't matter whether you are in a meeting or a group assessment for a job, there are moments where you are asked to give a 1-3 minute answer to a question. This is your moment to shine and yet, the mouth dries up and the words come out in a jumble and generally not quite what you wanted to say. Sound familiar? Get rid of this with coming to our meeting. We practice speaking for 2 minutes on an impromptu topic each time. There is a program for you to learn to create speeches that have impact, inspire, inform and motivate. Please RSVP so we can be sure to have a place at our table of 20 Toastmasters.
