Benefits of Membership
Members work through the Toastmasters International educational program to build on their existing communication and leadership skills. There are multiple stages where recognition and awards can be achieved.
Although members may join to improve their ability to make speeches and presentations, by taking part in meetings and the roles available within the club you will find yourself developing many other communication and leadership skills to help progress your career and support your goals in life.
Visitors and guests can look forward to a warm and friendly atmosphere. Whether you are joining in with our table topics sessions to improve your impromptu speaking, delivering a prepared speech project or taking a leadership role in the meeting such as toastmaster of the day we provide encouraging and helpful feedback to provide a positive learning experience.
Each member is entitled to a mentor within the club who will help you clarify and work towards your goals. As you develop you will also be invited to become a mentor to others
Membership gives you access to a wealth of information and support. As a member you will work on projects taking you through levels of your chosen learning path. There are multiple paths to chose from and we can help you select the option most suitable for your needs.
You can count on variety in our meetings, speeches may be educational, thought provoking or just entertaining and you will often get all of these in a single meeting. Subjects are wide ranging and have included glass making, preparing for interviews, dancing, local history and poetry readings amongst many others.
The club holds regular competitions giving winners the opportunity to compete at local, national and international level. As a club member you will have the option to compete, take part in the contest organisation or be part of the contest audience. If competition is not for you it's a great time to see fellow club members showcase their skills.
As a member you will receive a copy of the Toastmaster magazine with useful articles and stories from other clubs around the world.
