How do we do it?
A Typical Meeting
Learn how to put a speech together with our online training called Pathways. Get your message across and develop confidence by just doing it.
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.
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!
