Toastmasters at Laurier

  • 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.

Who can join?

Laurier Toastmasters is open to all staff, faculty, students and the public.
