For the members

Toastmasters International is a structured organization in which you can enhance your communication and leadership skills step by step and at your own pace.

After you have become a member, you will receive a welcome package which includes information about the newly revised Pathways which is a modernized learning experience suited to our changing global society. Each path blends leadership and communication skills through pre-designated projects.

The first speech in any path you choose will be the Ice breaker. This is a speech that introduces yourself to your audience. After that you can pick any subject you fancy for your next projects. This makes every meeting interesting and fun to attend, as you will learn about so many fascinating topics from your Fellow Toastmasters

There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success. Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop skills related to time management, grammar and parliamentary procedure.



For the club

Our club is as good as its members are ! In order to measure how well our club is doing in order to help our members to improve their communication and leadership skills, Toastmasters International has introduced the “Successful club series”. This program aims at giving precise goals to each Toastmasters club and reviews the progresses at the end of the year. The goals are as following:

Goal 1     Earn two Competent Communicators (CCs)
Goal 2     Earn an additional two CCs
Goal 3     Earn one Advanced Communicator (AC Bronze, AC Silver or AC Gold)
