What Our Clubs Do...

Prepared Speeches

Delivering prepared speeches allows you to gain valuable experience and get “stage time.” At the same time, the audience can be informed, inspired and often entertained. Come and share your ideas, opinions, stories or practice for that wedding, workplace presentation or simply build your self-confidence.

Impromptu Speeches

Impromptu Speaking is creating speeches or answer questions “off the cuff” without time to prepare. Often humorous, Toastmasters’ Table Topics teaches members to think on their feet and learn how to stay calm and think while communicating clearly and confidently.

Encouraging Evaluations

All speaking and leadership roles receive an evaluation. This is an opportunity to learn from others’ experience and discover blind spots as well as acknowledge your strengths and get tips on how to improve. Giving and receiving feedback is a valuable skill, with many practical uses at home, sport or at work.

Get Involved

Visit a Club

It is 100% free to visit as a guest and there will be no pressure to speak on the first meeting. Simply come along and enjoy the speeches! Most clubs  do not require booking beforehand. However, it may be worth sending a message beforehand to make sure the venue has not changed.

SIGN UP

If you like what you see and want to get involved, simply speak to one of the Club Officers during the meeting. They will be able to give you an application form and provide payment information.

SPEAK!

Now it is time to practice speaking! New members are usually assigned minor meeting roles to help you gradually build up your confidence. Once you are ready, the first speech will be your Ice Breaker. This is an opportunity to introduce yourself and become more comfortable speaking in front of an audience.
