What we're about

Do you want to improve your communication, public speaking, and leadership skills?

Do you have an interest in continuous learning and self-improvement?

If so, you might really enjoy and benefit from attending our Toastmasters club.

Vanguard Toastmasters meets weekly (every Weds) from 12:10-1pm at Western Digital off McCarthy Blvd.

Vanguard Toastmasters is a long-running club affiliated with Toastmasters International (TMI). Toastmasters International is a non-profit educational organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills through a worldwide network of clubs. TMI strives to be the first-choice provider of dynamic, high-value, experiential communication and leadership skills development.

Our agenda typically involved a few jokes to start the meeting followed by 5-7 minute prepared speeches on everything from Investing to Frugal Travel to Presenting to Executives to Self-Compassion. All speakers receive constructive feedback from the audience in a safe, compassionate way, and then we do called Table Topics, ad-hoc speaking regarding a philosophical or life experience question.
We are fortunate to have some professional-level speakers in our club, and visitors who choose not to speak can learn useful information from attending a meeting.
