Why Join Toastmasters – Improve your communication and leadership skills

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.

A typical club has between 20 to 40 members who meet either weekly, biweekly or monthly. An evening meeting normally lasts around 90- 120 minutes.

(Voyagers Toastmasters meets once a week for an hour and a half. Once a month we meet in the real world – hybrid meeting. The rest of the time via zoom)
There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations, pointing out the strengths and suggesting improvements. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success. Members also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop their leadership skills.

We learn through the Toastmasters Pathways learning experience, an exciting, flexible and interactive way to develop your skills and help others in your club develop theirs. Pathways helps you learn communication and leadership skills that you need to succeed. It gives you:

The opportunity to build up to 300 unique competencies
10 specialized learning paths to choose from
Online content, so that you can learn anytime, anywhere
Real-world, transferable skills
One thing that you’ll love at Toastmasters meetings is the applause. At first. you’ll be applauded for your effort; later you’ll be applauded for your skill.

What did you miss last week?

Our September 28th Meeting was great. Where you there? 17 Voyagers attended.

Maria F. was toastmaster and set the theme of “Weddings.” She shared her recent experience of her son’s destination wedding and described it as a graceful fusion of old traditions with modern twists.

Simon V educated us with his speech, Creating Lasting Behavioral Changes and we learned how important it is for a person to be willing to change and to have an engaged support group around them.

Luke E. shared his wedding day experience and how he chose the wedding venue because it came with the use of a Porsche 911!

Justin S. demonstrated how the speech creation process of an experienced Toastmaster can flow easily and gave us a personal and relevant speech on the Law of Attraction.
