What we're about

Westside Toastmasters provides a positive, supportive environment in which members have an opportunity to develop more effective speaking and leadership skills which help create self-confidence. Additionally, most members would concur that casual day-to-day social communication comes more easily. At our meetings you will:

-Learn and practice the art of effective public speaking
-Learn to overcome anxiety and speak confidently before an audience
-Improve the structure and flow of your message; including speech openings, closings, and transitions
-Evolve your physical delivery (e.g. body language; and voice volume, tone, tempo, and pitch) to enhance your message
-Adapt your communications style to the composition of the audience and deal with unexpected challenges that arise
-Sharpen your listening and analytical skills as you give constructive evaluations to fellow members
-Practice thinking on your feet while speaking extemporaneously (impromptu, on the spur of the moment)
-Refine your skills selling or persuading others of the value of your ideas, visions, services, or products
-Practice leadership skills and managing meetings as an emcee / master of ceremonies
-Enjoy being part of a constructive and supportive environment
