Why do people come to Southside Speakers?

Some of the ways we can help you

Find your Voice

Develop Confidence

Can’t speak up in meetings?  Worried about that Presentation? Our club can help you to become a more confident speaker.

Get your message across

Make it interesting

We help you to get your message across whether it is a TED talk, internal presenataion or just speaking to colleagues.  Learn the techniques. 

Learn Leadership skills

Become a Leader

Great leaders have great communication skills, which is central to our club.  We also provide training and opportunity in Leadership.

How do we do it?

A Typical Meeting

Prepared Speeches

Learn how to put a speech together with our online training called Pathways. Get your message across and develop confidence by just doing it.

Table Topics

Think on your feet with our impromptu speaking sessions. There is no obligation for newcomers to speak, so don't worry! These help you to cope with interviews, networking and general conversations.


We learn by doing but we also learn from each other. Everything you do will receive feeback so you can learn and improve. This is always done in a positive way so you can see what you did well and get some tips for making it better.

Meeting Helpers

Another impportant part of the learning experience is to take on a meeting role to help the meeting run smoothly. You can be Evaluator, Grammarian or that funny thing called the "ah" counter!

The Toastmasters learning experience is about going at your own pace.  When you visit us, you do not have to speak but we do encourage you to do so.  If asked to say something and you don’t feel comfortable, just say “pass”.  All our members were once
first-timers and we understand.  Don’t let worrying about speaking put you off visiting.  You might surprise yourself!

Visit us with no obligation to speak!
