 Why Toastmasters
Your success in any organization depends significantly on your ability to speak to a group--to convince them of your ideas and to motivate them to achieve common goals.
 
Toastmasters has been around for more than 90 years and offers a proven and enjoyable way to practice and hone communication and leadership skills.

How Does It Work?
A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere.

There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success.

Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop skills related to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedure.
