Toastmasters is a place where you develop and grow, personally and professionally. You join a community of learners, and in Toastmasters meetings, we learn by doing. Whether you’re an executive or a stay-at-home parent, a college student or a retiree, you will improve yourself; building skills to express yourself in all manner of situations. You’ll open up a world of new possibilities: giving better work presentations, leading and participating in meetings more confidently, speaking more smoothly off the cuff, even handling one-on-one interactions with family, friends and colleagues more positively.
By learning to effectively prepare, organize and express your ideas to others, you can achieve great success. You’ll be more capable and confident when giving presentations. You’ll be more persuasive when pitching prospective clients. Want to be better at negotiating your salary with your boss? Networking at business or social functions? Motivating co-workers or your kids?
To be a strong leader, you must be an effective communicator. At Centretown Toastmasters you will enhance your speaking skills and you will develop leadership abilities, through evaluations, listening, mentoring, serving as club officers and performing roles in club meetings. You will take those leadership skills out into the world, running businesses, mentoring young people, organizing fundraisers, coaching teams and guiding families. What’s not to like?
