What we’re about

Are you a State Farm associate with a desire to take your presentation skills from good to great, to overcome a fear of public speaking, or to strengthen your leadership skills through networking and leadership programs? If so, then State Farm OAKS Toastmasters Club is for you.

Stop in and visit an OAKS Toastmasters meeting, free of cost, and see what Toastmasters can do for.

OAKS Toastmasters is the perfect place to improve your communication skills, develop the leadership skills you desire, and increase your ability to influence others through confident public speaking.

We welcome any associate of State Farm with access to Corp. South.

At Toastmasters, new members learn the art of public speaking by completing the Competent Communicator manual. This manual is included as part of your membership and provides you with your first ten speech assignments, all carefully structured to ensure your success. Each speech features basic speaking skills such as how to organize a speech, how to use props or visual aids, how to use voice inflections, and how to persuade or inspire your audience.

Advanced members who have completed their first manual have many choices from the Advanced Series of manuals. One example is the Interpersonal Communications series which teaches you how to be a good negotiator, diffuse difficult situations, sell products, and make cold calls.

Table Topics is a fun segment of every meeting that helps participants build skills for thinking on their feet. These are impromptu opportunities to speak for 1-2 minutes on a given subject.

Besides mastering the art of public speaking, membership provides the added benefits of networking and developing great friendships.

Come and visit us sometime, so you can experience our friendly environment and see if State Farm OAKS Toastmasters Club is right for you.
