I have met so many marvelous people since joining Toastmasters! This is living at its best, becoming the best me I can be and having the honor of encouraging others while they do the same.

I joined Toastmasters as a busy introverted supervisor who wanted to improve my communication skills. At my own pace, project by project, I read, I spoke, I listened, I evaluated, I tried new things, I stretched myself, and I led. With words of encouragement and evaluators who provided golden nuggets of truth—I transformed. Today, I tackle new adventures with courage and vision. I speak with enthusiasm and vibrancy at confidence levels that inspire and motivate.
Imagine the fear and anxiety: giving the eulogy of a dear old family friend in front of 200 people; as a father, speaking at your daughter’s wedding – reflecting on the special moment to family and guests. Horrifying!! But, with some Toastmasters experience I had enough confidence to rise to the occasion and perform my roles exceptionally well!

I was already a senior leader in my organization when I discovered Toastmasters and initially doubted I needed it...as I already had "made it" in my career. I quickly learned how much I still had to learn and, after joining, my skills improved exponentially.

Toastmasters Clubs provide a supportive atmosphere for beginners. No experience necessary!
Toastmasters is an awesome organization. With each speech and project it has increased my confidence. It has opened up many opportunities for me to share my gifts and this is not something I have to do it is something I get to do.
Toastmasters means being able to make a difference. Through Toastmasters, I've learned to stand up and speak in front of others without fear, to feel comfortable working with people with different outlooks and points of view, to provide feedback to others in a positive and supportive way, and to feel confident when leading groups people. Toastmasters teaches you how to do amazing things!
A Toastmasters club is a “learn-by-doing” workshop in which men and women hone their skills in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere. A typical club has 20 to 40 members, who meet weekly or biweekly to learn and practice presentation techniques. The average club meeting lasts approximately one hour.
