We are located at KL Sentral and would like to invite those in the vicinity to come join us to develop their speaking and leadership skills. We are an in-house club but would like to open our Toastmaster meetings to some external folks. Our meetings are currently scheduled to happen on 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month at 1:00pm to 3:00pm. We know! We know! Meetings during office hours are difficult! Look at the brighter side, if you're nearby you can just walk here and if you hate late meetings, this may work for you :D
What do you need to bring and prepare? Yourself and a pen! XD
Now, here comes the 'official' intro to a Toastmasters Club :)
Toastmasters International is a non-profit educational organisation that teaches public speaking and leadership skills through a worldwide network of meeting locations. Our organisation has more than 357,000 memberships in more than 16,600 clubs in 143 countries. Since 1924, Toastmasters International has helped people of all backgrounds become more confident in front of an audience.
How Does It Work?
A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere.
There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success.
Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop skills related to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedure.
