Toastmasters International

Toastmasters was founded in 1924 at the Santa Ana YMCA in California by a youth leader named Ralph Smedley. He wanted to teach young professionals how to give after-dinner speeches and toasts at social functions.

Toastmasters International’s network consists of over 15,000 clubs that meet in 135 countries across the globe.

Meeting Format

There are no teachers in a Toastmasters club. Members take turns giving speeches and being evaluated by their peers. The program is self-paced and you get to choose your speech topics.

Every meeting has a set agenda but no one has the same responsibility week after week. As you gain your confidence you will be rostered on for new roles. This allows members to develop not only their speaking skills but their organisational skills as well.

Benefits of joining Toastmasters

Every speech that you present involves the learning of speaking new skills which will naturally become part of your speaking repertoire.

You will also to have the opportunity to use the Club’s projector for your speeches. This can be of great help if your are needing to practice a work powerpoint presentation.

The benefits these skills bring, in both social and business settings, is why Toastmasters has been such a success all around the world.
