What is Toastmasters?From a humble beginning in 1924 at the YMCA in Santa Ana, California,
Toastmasters International has grown to become a world leader in
helping people become more competent and comfortable in front of an
audience. The nonprofit organization now has nearly 235,000 members in 11,700 clubs in 92 countries, offering a proven – and enjoyable! – way to practice and hone communication and leadership skills.Most
Toastmasters meetings are comprised of approximately 20 people who meet
weekly for an hour or two. Participants practice and learn skills by
filling a meeting role, ranging from giving a prepared speech or an
impromptu one to serving as timer, evaluator or grammarian.There
is no instructor; instead, each speech and meeting is critiqued by a
member in a positive manner, focusing on what was done right and what
could be improved.
