HOW can Toastmasters help me to:


1.       Overcome my fear of public speaking?

Practice, practice, and more practice! The only way to overcome your fear is to confront it. But at Toastmasters, you'll learn and practice in a friendly and comfortable environment with people who also there for the same reason as you are. With continued participation, you'll gain confidence that will allow you to apply your skills to make you a better communicator!


2.       Improve my speaking skills?

Toastmasters can help you to improve your speaking skills by giving you the chance to practice speaking in a variety of ways: table topics, prepared speeches, debates, viewpoints, conducting a meeting, and many more! Every prepared speaker is also assigned an evaluator who points out speech strengths and offers suggestions for improvement.


3.       Build leadership skills?

Toastmasters will help you to build leadership skills by allowing you the chance to conduct and organize meetings, take part in roles such as Toastmaster, or by serving as a member of the executive.


4.       Meet new people?

You will meet with your Toastmasters club on a weekly basis for meetings, where you will have the chance to interact with and meet new people who have the same goals as you do! Toastmasters also hosts contests, conferences, seminars and workshops, where you will have the chance to meet and talk to some of the best speakers around, who come from all walks of life!


As a Toastmaster you will also have the opportunity to visit other clubs and meet more people. Some clubs hold social functions such as parties, potlucks and baseball games to give you more chance to get to know each other and practice your communication skills!


5.       Improve your presentation skills at work?

Toastmasters can help you gain the confidence and the skills to become a better presenter! The workplace is a place where your communication skills matter the most! Being able to present your ideas to your colleagues and your boss effectively can make a real difference in terms of how they view you and your work.
