What we're about
Woodland Toastmasters (http://woodlandsb.toastmastersclubs.org) is a group dedicated to help people improve their communication and leadership skills. Everyone, regardless of their background or career, could improve their presentation abilities.
Toastmasters International is a worldwide, non-profit organization devoted specifically for that. Woodland Toastmasters is a supportive and fun group open to everyone who would like to get more comfortable speaking in front of a crowd. The Toastmasters philosophy is simple: learn by doing. The club allows members to hone their speaking skills by giving speeches at meetings on any topic of their choice.
In addition to speaking roles, members may serve as masters-of-ceremony ("Toastmaster") or as other peripheral roles. In short, everyone is given a chance to speak as much as possible. Most of our meetings have about 15-20 attendees (Most of the attendees are regular members of the club, but not listed on meetup). Guests are always welcome at our meetings. There is no fee to visit, and no obligation to join or give a speech.
Simply stop by to get a feel for what is going on. Our meetings take place every Tuesday between 7 PM and 8:30 PM @Balboa Building (Downtown, State Street).
