Toastmasters is a place where we develop and grow - both personally and professionally. At Toastmasters meetings we learn by doing. Whether you're an executive or a stay-at-home parent, you will build skills to express yourself in a variety of situations. You'll open up a world of new possibilities: giving better work presentations; leading and participating in meetings more confidently; speaking off the cuff more smoothly; even handling one-on-one interactions with family, friends and colleagues.
In a club meeting, you practice giving prepared speeches as well as brief impromptu presentations, known as Table Topics. Constructive evaluation is central to the Toastmasters philosophy. Each time you speak, 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.
Guest are always welcome and never pressured to speak.
