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.
