"Every Toastmaster's Journey Starts With a Single Speech"
We are a group of dedicated individuals who meet weekly to become better communicators and leaders. This is done under the Toastmaster's, Intl. organization.
Each meeting starts with one to three speeches by members who are completing a customized path of speech assignments. Then the speeches are evaluated in an uplifting and encouraging manner.
After this the fun really starts, because the next phase is table topics. The Table Topics master gives willing members the opportunity to speak extemporaneously about a subject they don't know in advance. This is a great tool for teaching us to think on our feet.
Once the table topics are done, some votes are taken to see who wins the best speaker, best evaluator and best table topics. Some club business may then be conducted and the meeting is adjourned.
Different Toastmasters groups have different characters. This group is open to all, from students to professionals, from empty nesters to small business people, from entrepreneurs to storytellers.
