What we're about

Are you in sales, training, HR or management? Do you have to speak in front of a group or for a one-on-one presentation? Does your stomach knot up and your palms get sweaty? We can help! Through a series of 10 projects, you will develop better communication and presentation skills AND get over that fear of public speaking. We are a non-profit business club so we may also be good for networking. But you don't have to be in business - you just need a desire to improve your skills in a welcoming and encouraging environment.

Scared to speak in public?

Porter County Community Foundation

We are Zoom-ing now! Speaking on video not only LOOKS different, it feels different for the speaker. Learn with us. Find the Zoom meeting number here: https://255.toastmastersclubs.org

We still practice eliminating ah, um, er, like, so and other filler words. We still use our voice to reflect emotion. We still practice using a metaphor to explain difficult statistics. We still are in this together, learning to communicate in a superb way that will lead us to a promotion, a better job and winning the hearts of those with whom we have everyday conversations.

There is no cost to visit our meetings. Please meet with us at 6:15PM on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Tuesdays. Tell us what communication skills you need to develop and how you currently use them and we can immediately tell you if you are at the right place - or not. Our members learn and have fun doing it.

You may be more comfortable communicating by email or cell phone than in person. Speaking to large or small groups, or even one-to-one, may intimidate or frighten you. Yet good communication skills are vital if you want to be successful. Corporate leaders say that the ability to communicate well orally is one of the most important skills their recruiters look for in job candidates. Businesses want people who express themselves clearly and confidently, and are persuasive and comfortable communicating with a wide range of people, from top executives to assembly line workers.

group meets the 1st, 3rd and 5th Wednesdays of the month. Some of us join our group as a place to practice for their public speaking engagements. Some join because they want to become professional speakers! The majority want to have more confidence when speaking in front of a group. Our peer evaluations provide the feedback members need in order to become an engaging communicator! We practice three types of speaking at our meeting.
