● What can we do in the Toastmasters club ?
Toastmasters will give you the skills and confidence you need to effectively express yourself in any situation. Whether you are a professional, student, stay-at-home parent, or retiree, Toastmasters is the most efficient, enjoyable, and affordable way of gaining great communication skills. You’ll be more persuasive and confident when giving presentations, and you’ll improve your one-on-one dealings with others.
● What do we do at the Toastmasters meeting?
Our regular meeting program follows the globally used meeting procedures and uses materials provided by the Toastmasters educational program. Meetings consist of several speech sessions by the members. Half of the ABC meeting is in English, although for many of our members it is not the mother tongue. Don’t worry! The environment is friendly and supportive, and the self-paced program allows you to build confidence with each speaking assignment.
● Please come and see our club!
Our club is always open to visitors. Why not visit our next meeting? We hold meetings on the 1st and 3rd Saturday morning of the month from 10 am to noon.
