What we're about

Oliver Cromwell once famously stated - “He who stops being better, stops being good”. Here at Uptown Professionals Toastmasters, continuous improvement is precisely the driving force behind all that we do. As a group of dynamic and energetic small business owners and professionals hailing from a wide variety of industries, we believe that effective communication begets long-standing connectivity. To that end, our collective goal is to continuously empower ourselves and each other to become the best communicators and leaders in our respective fields.

What you can expect from an Uptown Toastmasters meeting is OPPORTUNITY:
An opportunity to practice giving speeches and confront the jitters that (inevitably) come with public speaking.
An opportunity to tell your story, in front of listening ears.
An opportunity to receive clear, honest, and kind critiques from fellow members who value the growth that comes with radical candor.
An opportunity for mentorship, by fellow members who understand the process of honing in on an area of anxiety and transforming it into an invaluable skill set.
And last but never the least, an opportunity to be a part of a culture that fosters personal growth.

Come meet us and see for yourself!
