You’ll improve your interpersonal communication and be more persuasive and confident when giving speeches.

Through Toastmasters, you’ll gain the practice to become the leader and speaker you want to be. You will also sharpen your management skills, become a better negotiator, gain trust and inspire your team. Learn to be decisive!

How Toastmasters works

At Toastmasters, members learn by speaking to groups and working with others in a supportive environment. A typical Toastmasters club is made up of approximately 20 people who meet once a week for about an hour. Each meeting gives members several opportunities:

  • Conduct meetings
    Members learn how to plan and conduct meetings.

  • Give impromptu speeches
    Members present one- to two-minute, impromptu speeches about assigned topics.

  • Present prepared speeches
    Members present speeches based on projects from the Pathways learning experience—Toastmasters’ education program. Projects cover topics such as speech organization, vocal variety, language, gestures and persuasion.

  • Offer constructive evaluation
    Every speaker is assigned an evaluator who points out speech strengths and offers suggestions for improvement.

  • Pathways Learning Experience
    Pathways is Toastmasters’ exciting, interactive and flexible education program. With 11 paths to choose from (and more in development), you have the option to pick which skills you want to focus on.
