How does it work?
The environment in a Toastmasters club is friendly and supportive. Everyone at a Toastmasters meeting feel welcome and valued – from beginners to advanced speakers.
In a club meeting, you practice giving prepared speeches as well as brief impromptu presentations, known as Table Topics. There is no rush or pressure to get one stage: The Toastmasters program allows you to progress at your own pace.
Constructive evaluation is central to the Toastmasters philosophy. Each time you give a prepared speech, an evaluator will point out strengths as well as suggest improvements. Receiving – and giving – such feedback is a great learning experience. In Toastmasters, encouragement and improvement go hand-in-hand.

Good Leaders are Good Communicators
Anyone who is a strong leader has to first be an effective communicator.
In Toastmasters you will hone your speaking skills, and you will develop leadership abilities – through evaluations, listening, mentoring, serving as club officers and filling roles in club meetings. You will take those leadership skills out into the world, running businesses, mentoring youths, organizing fund-raisers, coaching teams and heading up families.
Become the speaker and leader you want to be. Confident, charismatic leaders weren’t born that way, they became that way. Toastmasters members learn to tell their story, listen and answer. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.
