Long Beach Diagonal Toastmasters Club offers a friendly, fun, and non-threatening environment where members practice their speaking and leadership skills. Members learn to think on their feet and speak confidently in a wide range of situations. Members practice short 1-2 minute off the cuff speeches (table topics). Members are encouraged to participate but don't have to until they feel ready. Once you decide to join members will receive work books to help guide them in preparing longer 5-7 minute speeches and in building leadership skills by actively taking part each week in club duties such as timer, evaluator, or toastmaster.
