Welcome to Zuriberg Toastmasters Club
The Zuriberg Toastmasters Club meets roughly 3 times per month on Tuesday in the gorgeous Zunftsaal room of the Blue Monkey restaurant.

What happens at a meeting?
Every meeting is lead by the toastmaster of the evening, beginning with a welcome to our guests before the Word of the Day is introduced. After that, the main part of a meeting begins: the prepared speeches. Usually, we have three to four speeches of usually 5-7 minutes.

After around 45 minutes, we close the first part of the meeting. Together enjoy dinner prepared by the Blue Monkey restaurant.

After tending to our culinary needs, we start the second part of the evening with short and insightful evaluations of the prepared speeches.

We then move to the impromptu speeches known as Table Topics, an opportunity for our guests to participate as well. The general evaluator and her/his team then shares an evaluation of the meeting.

Finally, by gathering feedback from our guests we officially close the meeting. Everybody is welcome to attend the third unofficial part of the meeting, some interesting conversations over a drink.

Questions and Answers
Q: Do I need to speak at a club meeting?
A: No. You are not obliged to speak when visiting a club. You may simply be an observer, if you wish so. But we encourage you at least to introduce yourself and to give us your feedback at the end. And if you wish, you can participate in the Table Topics.

Q: Is there a leader or instructor?
A: There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. The club will have elected club officers present and a Toastmaster who facilitates the meeting. By joining the club you receive the competent communicator manual, which contains ten projects to learn and improve your public speaking skills. If you wish, you can also have an experienced member as mentor for the first three speech projects.

Q: Do I have to pay for the dinner?
A: Yes, dinner is not for free and costs around 30.- CHF. Keep in mind though that you do not only get a delicious dinner, but also one of the most beautiful locations for a toastmaster meeting, the gorgeous guild hall. Soft drinks are not included and cost 6.- CHF.

Q: How many people will be there?
A: Normally we have about 20-30 members and guests attending our meetings. The RSVP people in Meetup are usually the guests.
