Toastmasters for Staff

  • Are you interested in developing your public speaking skills in a comfortable environment with colleagues?
  • Would you commit to attending meetings on a regular basis to get to know your colleagues and practice?

What is Toastmasters?

A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere.

There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another's presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program's success.

Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop skills related to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedure.
