What is Toastmasters?
Toastmasters International was established in 1924 by Dr. Ralph Smedley as a safe haven for practicing public speaking and leadership skills.
How does Toastmasters work?
A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop. Through Toastmasters Educational Programs, members enjoy opportunities to practice and build skills by participating in meetings and filling various roles. They might give prepared or impromptu speeches or serve as timer, evaluator or grammarian. Members may also be called upon to lead a volunteer committee or serve as a club officer.
The Toastmasters educational program offers each member training in communication and leadership skills. The communication and leadership tracks are not mutually exclusive; members may participate in both at the same time, if they wish.
Members progress along each track by working through a series of manuals, and each manual offers a set of projects to complete. Each project includes an evaluation guide, which gives members an easy way to provide and receive immediate feedback.
Toastmasters Educational Program - The Communication Track
Members learn communication skills by working in the Competent Communicationmanual, a series of 10 self-paced speaking projects designed to instill a basic foundation in public speaking.
Each project focuses on a different skill and also includes an evaluation guide, which gives members an easy way to provide immediate feedback as the project is completed.
Members learn a variety of public speaking skills such as:
Speech organization | Eye contact | Gestures | Use of humor | Overall delivery
Toastmasters Educational Program - The Leadership Track
Toastmasters participants learn to lead when they take on responsibilities and accomplish goals. By serving as officers or fulfilling meeting roles, members have fun learning and enhancing the following leadership skills:
Listening | Critical thinking | Giving feedback | Time management | Planning
Delegating | Facilitating | Motivating | Mentoring | Team building
