Your best ideas deserve your best words
By learning to effectively formulate, express and sell your ideas to others, you open a whole new world of career possibilities. You’ll be more persuasive and confident when giving presentations. You’ll even improve your one-on-one interactions with others. Want to be better at negotiating your salary with your boss? Networking at business functions? Pitching prospective clients? Motivating co-workers – or your kids?
Toastmasters can help
Even experienced speakers can benefit from our proven training programs. In a Toastmasters club, you’ll learn to relax, plan and present a terrific speech – whether you have 10 days to prepare or just 10 seconds. You’ll learn to listen effectively, think on your feet and speak confidently in a wide range of situations. Best of all, you’ll practice in a friendly, supportive environment with people who are there for the same reasons you are – to become better communicators and leaders.
Good leaders are good communicators
Leadership is the art of persuading others to do what you wish to be done. To do so, you need to communicate, and you need to work as a team. In a Toastmasters club, you’ll do both. And you’ll find out how to vary your approach to suit the needs of different people, be they the audience for a speech, the committee for a fundraiser, or the members of your family.
Become the speaker and leader you want to be. Confident, charismatic leaders weren’t born that way. As you progress in Toastmasters, you’ll get to practice your skills by organizing and conducting meetings and motivating others to help you. Become a better negotiator. Gain trust. Sharpen your management skills. Inspire your team. Be decisive! For membership meeting information, please see our membership information page.
