Next Meetup

Join us in an evening full of fun as we learn to speak on our feet!
• What we'll do There are different components to a Toastmasters meeting. The Sergeant of Arms opens the meeting and sets the stage for the evening. Then the Toastmaster for the night leads the rest of the evening so that it runs smoothly. Everyone gets a chance to do something if you are up to it, from time keeping and grammarian to table topics master, who dishes out a series of themes or questions for impromptu speeches (1-2 minutes). There is something for everyone. We have great fun while learning. • What to bring Just an open mind and ready to stand up and talk, if you are up to it. But don't worry, we only give you a nudge, not a push. We kindly ask for your participation. That is sometimes the only thing it takes to encourage someone new to speak up on their first night. • Important to know If visiting for the first time, come 15 minutes earlier so someone can take care of you and explain what will happen during the meeting so you know what to expect. Otherwise, just come and sit back and enjoy the evening!

What we're about

At Spreydon Toastmasters, you only need to visit to see Toastmaster members who are developing their presentation skills. Just as you can’t ride a bike the day you’re born, presentation and leadership skills also need practice. During your visit you will be welcomed by friendly members who joined Spreydon Toastmasters to gain confidence through practising their speaking and leadership skills. What do you get when you join Spreydon Toastmasters? Our members will give you support, as you learn and grow in confidence. Our members are all at different levels, and the key to Toastmasters’ success is the desire of members to help each other improve their listening, thinking and speaking abilities. Spreydon Toastmasters Club offers the best of both worlds – organised and excellent meetings within which to learn and improve; whilst being a fun, warm group of individuals who don’t take life too seriously, and enjoy many laughs along the way!
