What we're about

Does the idea of public speaking freak you out? Join the club!

If you are reading this, then you already know how useful it is to be able to speak in front of a group of people, or even strangers, with the confidence of a pro. You probably already know exactly what to say… but in reality, you stumble like an amateur when it’s time to deliver. You’re witty and articulate, but you sure didn’t sound it when you had to make a point at the last work meeting.

The best way to overcome the fear of public speaking is practice, practice, practice. And we have a more interesting way for you to do that…unless you really enjoy giving speeches to your mirror.

If you’re ready to show the world - your coworkers, friends and family - the charismatic, intelligent and articulate part of you - or if you simply want to make a good impression at your next job interview, join the club.

Lofty is just one of more than 16,600 Toastmaster clubs in 143 countries around the world. Our unique club in the Arts District is made up of a small group of creative professionals who have pledged to work on their fear of public speaking together twice a month. (For a grand total of 4 hours per month!)

Public speaking is scary - but stick with us and you’ll not only learn how to master the art of communication… you’ll also learn to love it - and meet some great people along the way.

We'd like to make you a guarantee: If you attend a full meeting, and we don't disappear your fear of public speaking, Brandon (our current club president) will pay you $5! Hopefully, you can tell by now, we're not your normal Toastmasters. We're not your normal Toastmasters. We meet in the Arts District so being creative and operating outside-the-box is what we want to be the new normal. And our diverse membership proves our contrary we are to other clubs. With members who are entrepreneurs and own their own businesses as well as those who work at Netflix, Hyperloop One, Lucky Brand and Guess? Inc., people join us to get past their fears of public speaking, improve their speaking skills (writing, delivery, confidence) and practice talks they need to give at work or in community settings. This happens all in a safe and reassuring small community of people you come to see as friends. Come check out some of our artistic speeches, join us for a drink in the Arts District afterward. You'll LOVE us! :)
