The Toastmasters Club Experience

For nearly 100 years Toastmasters has helped millions of people become more confident communicators, public speakers and leaders. Our club meetings are at the heart of how our members achieve effective communication and leadership skills. While each club has its own character, there are some things that are consistent, no matter where you are in the world. To find out more, contact a club near you. or you may wish to start a club.

Our Education Programme

In addition to the supportive club environment , there is a structured education programme, called Pathways. It is our experience that the more people get involved in our education programme, the more they develop their communications and leadership skills, and confidence.  Our club meetings are designed to draw all elements of our education – prepared speeches, table topics, evaluations as well as functionary roles such as timekeeping and tracking great use of language.

There are a range of resources on the Toastmasters International site for you to explore further.
