How does it work?
A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop
The members hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere.
They will learn communication skills with the help of the Competent Communication manual, a series of 10 self-paced speaking assignments designed to instill a basic foundation in public speaking.
Apart from communication skills, they will also learn leadership skills by taking on various meeting roles with the help of the Competent Leadership manual.
There are no instructors in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations, thus by making it more enjoyable! This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success.
