Lake Ridge Toastmasters
Need to brush up on your professional speaking and networking skills? Looking to meet a few new people in the area? We are an open-to-all gathering of casual enthusiasts and professionals who meet every Wednesday night to give short prepared or improvised speeches, exchange stories, and perform constructive peer evaluations, with an enjoyable follow-up social hour (or two) at a local restaurant right down the road. Average meetings ( comprise about 15-25 members in audience, featuring two to three prepared speeches, followed by a peer evaluation session. There is an opportunity for everyone (guests included) to participate in the improvised "Table Topics" session mid-meeting. Meetings are held every Wednesday from 7:30pm - 9:15pm at the Tall Oaks Pool in the community room in the top floor of the pool house. Entrance is at the front of the building opposite the pool; we are right inside the big red doors! Look for the building on the corner lot of Hedges Run & Cotton Mill Drive. Parking is available in the Tall Oaks Pool and Fantasy Playground parking lot. Visit the official Lake Ridge Toastmasters Website ( Visit Lake Ridge Toastmasters on Facebook (

Where Leaders Are Made

About Toastmasters International

Whether you work in a corporate environment or from home, are a student or retiree, Toastmasters is the most efficient, enjoyable and affordable way of gaining communication and leadership skills.

Become a Better Speaker
Toastmasters will give you the skills and confidence you need to effectively express yourself in any situation. By learning to formulate and convey your ideas, you open a new world of possibilities. You will be more persuasive and confident when giving presentations and you will improve your one-on-one dealings with others.

Become a Leader
Leadership is the art of persuading others to do what you wish. To succeed, you need to communicate, and you need to work as a team. In Toastmasters, you’ll do both. And you’ll find out how to vary your approach to suit the needs of different people, be they the audience for a speech, the committee for a fundraiser or your coworkers and managers.
