Online event

Welcome to Zuriberg Toastmasters Club!

This evening is contest time ! If you want to attend the meeting, please contact us through the form herein.

Normally ...

We meet about three times a month in the gorgeous guildhall of the Blue Monkey restaurant in downtown Zurich.

A place to learn…

Every meeting begins with welcoming our guests, introducing the different roles and the Word of the Day. Then, club members with prepared speeches will be invited to the floor. After this first part of the meeting, we communicate over a delicious dinner prepared by the restaurant.

The second part of the evening is devoted to evaluations and impromptu speaking: All speakers receive feedback by an evaluator and then the flexibility of our mind is challenged by questions that need to be answered of the cuff. Guests are very welcome to participate in this session known as Table Topics.

…in a friendly environment

Did we adhere to the time limits? How often did we use filler words? How was our usage of the English language and did the speech-evaluators point out room for improvement? Questions such as these will be answered by the timer, the ah-counter, the grammarian and the general evaluator.

Come and see for yourself

In our club, you can learn public speaking in a welcoming, friendly environment. What’s more, no other Toastmasters Club in Zurich can boast such a beautiful stage. So come and see for yourself!
