What we're about

Looking to build your communication and leadership skills, boost confidence and improve your employability? Whatever your goals in life, your success depends on your ability to communicate effectively. Perth Toastmasters offers a fantastic environment to build such skills in a fun and enjoyable setting.

We meet on the 1st, 3rd and 5th (if there is one) Monday of each month at the North Inch Community Campus, Gowans Terrace, Perth from 7pm (Please be there by 6:45 so that we can start meetings promptly). Whatever your goals in life may be, your success depends on your ability to communicate effectively. Individuals who can express their ideas so that they are heard, understood and acted upon, possess one of the primary qualities of leadership.

You are welcome to come along to any meeting as a guest so you can find out whether Toastmasters is right for you. There's no charge for attending as a guest, so you can find out what Toastmasters is all about for yourself before deciding whether to join Perth Toastmasters and embark on a programme that will multiply your communication and leadership skills.

Becoming a member

The Toastmasters programme is suitable for everyone (though the minimum age for membership is 18 years). The atmosphere at meetings is friendly, informal, and supportive.

Members come from a variety of occupations: education, PR, journalism, sales, hotel administration, design, museums and many other categories from computing to homeopathy. Many of them have to talk to groups regularly in the course of their work, and feel there is room for improvement. Everyone believes that developing the ability to speak in public is character-forming and beneficial to their careers. Becoming a member of Perth Toastmasters provides access to the Toastmasters International communication and leadership programs. You also become a part of the world-wide Toastmasters' community.

You are welcome to come to any of our meetings as a guest for free.

What does membership cost?

Perth Toastmasters membership costs about the same as attending an average evening class. It is a non-profit making, educational organisation. All our funds go towards the hiring of a venue to hold our meetings, the purchase of educational materials for the benefit of members, and promoting the club to those who might benefit from what it has to offer.

To join the club you have to pay a one-off registration fee to Toastmasters International at a cost of £20. This includes your Communication and Leadership Manuals, and a subscription to the Toastmasters monthly magazine with lots of hints and tips on public speaking.

The Perth Toastmasters subscriptions are currently £70 for six months, or £120 for 12 months (a saving of £20 annually). In addition, when joining for 12 months there is the option to pay by monthly standing order at £12 per month.

Perth Toastmasters Club Meeting

North Inch Community Campus

Looking to build your communication and leadership skills, boost confidence and improve your employability? Whatever your goals in life, your success depends on your ability to communicate effectively. Perth Toastmasters offers a fantastic environment to build such skills in a fun and enjoyable setting. What happens at a meeting? The first objective of the club meetings is to improve our communications skills. The aim is that everybody who comes will have an opportunity to speak in public, and can listen actively to the other speakers. Guests are under no obligation to speak if they don’t want to, and they can attend for up to 3 meetings for free. The meeting is made up of two halves. The first half is usually taken up with impromptu speaking. The impromptu speaking session is called Table Topics. These are questions posed to members of the club (and guests if they wish to participate), who speak about the topic for up to 2 minutes. The second half is taken up with prepared speeches and evaluations. The prepared speeches are taken from the Toastmasters Manuals. The first Manual is the Competent Communication Manual which is a course made up of ten speeches. The first speech is The Icebreaker which involves introducing yourself to the club in a speech lasting 4-6 minutes. The other speeches last 5-7 minutes and include, "How to Say It" and "Inspire Your Audience". Even though the tasks have specific objectives, members are free to talk about any subject they wish (without being offensive). We normally aim to have two or three prepared speeches each evening. All performances at the club are evaluated. An experienced member of the club will give feedback on how the speaker came across to the audience. An evaluation slip will be completed by each member of the audience for the speaker to read, and therefore learn from their efforts. If you come as a guest, you will be able to evaluate whether you think Toastmasters is right for you. So come along and enjoy the evening!
