How does Toastmasters work?
The club is at the heart of your Toastmasters journey. Most clubs have around 20 to 30 members and meet once a week for two hours.
In a Toastmasters club, you can expect to practice your public speaking and leadership skills among a group of people who want you to succeed. You will follow a proven education program, “Pathways”, driven by four key principles:
- Experiential learning – By giving speeches and fulfilling leadership roles, you practice and improve.
- Peer feedback – Grow and improve your public speaking and communication skills through honest and supportive peer evaluation.
- Mentoring – Experienced mentors encourage, guide and support you in your goals and help you to achieve more than you thought possible.
- Self-paced program – Develop skills at your own pace and comfort level.
Your club is your place to practice and learn. Watch this video to get a preview of how a typical club meeting at Toastmasters works:
