Why Toastmasters?

Since 1924, Toastmasters International has helped millions of men and women become more confident in front of an audience. Our learn-by-doing program will help you become a better speaker and leader. Why pay thousands of dollars for a seminar when you can join Toastmasters for a fraction of the cost and have fun in the process?

HOW IT WORKS

Douglas Business Park Toastmasters members grow through regular participation – taking on leadership and speaking roles to enhance their abilities. Our club is comprised of very supportive people from local businesses who meet for an hour, twice a month.  There are no instructors – members provide feedback to one another in a safe, encouraging environment.  Everyone has an opportunity to practice delivering impromptu speeches, giving prepared presentations, conducting meetings and offering constructive evaluations.

Guest Info

At the beginning of the meeting, the club president will ask you to share with us the following: who you are, what inspired you to observe our meeting and how you found our club. At the end of the meeting the club president will ask you for your impressions of the meeting. We welcome guest participation during the impromptu “Table Topics” portion of the meeting as well as casting a vote for best Table Topics, Evaluator and Prepared speakers.

What if I’m not a good speaker?

Don’t worry! Everyone in a Toastmasters meeting was once at the level you are now. The environment is friendly and supportive, and the self-paced program allows you to build confidence with each speaking assignment. And you’ll love the applause! Constructive evaluation is the heart of the Toastmasters program. Each time you give a prepared speech, an evaluator will point out strengths and suggest improvements. At first you’ll be applauded for your effort; later, you’ll be applauded for your skill.
