"If you just communicate, you can get by. But if you communicate skillfully, you can work miracles." - Jim Rohn.
It's our favorite time of week! Our Pearl District Toastmasters Club is a lively, committed, welcoming, and positive group of enthusiastic folks ranging from entrepreneurs, coaches, stay-at-home moms, and authors, to professionals and creatives all seeking and giving support to one another as we push ourselves to grow our communication and leadership skills.
We Love guests! Come see what we're all about as often as you'd like. Guests are also welcome to get their feet wet on the stage with an invitation to participate in the Table Topics section of our meeting which is a chance to answer an on-the-fly question in front of the group, or take a couple minutes to talk about yourself!
We meet every Thursday for an hour at 12:15 in the offices behind First Presbyterian Church in downtown Portland (West side entrance). At the west side entrance give the door a knock or a buzz; a receptionist will let you in. When you enter the building turn left and go upstairs.
We meet in the first room on your left (Room 207) on the second floor. If you get confused, you can ask the friendly receptionist for directions.
(Note: our group has no religious affiliation; we are gratefully loaned the space).
Arrive at least 5 minutes early if possible. We start promptly at 12:15, so coming early allows you to say hello, get a name tag, and settle in.
We'd love to have you join us at our next meeting!
You can go to the "About Us" tab on the left to get more of an idea of how our meetings work and a tiny taste of our group flavor! Also, if you want a more clear picture in mind of exactly HOW a meeting is held, please check out this short video, which serves as an example of a meeting from the Toastmasters International website:
