How does it work?
Toastmasters meetings are based around 2 frameworks:
- A communication framework – which sets out 10 different speeches stages. At each stage you are required to practice new skills in your speech that will help you improve as a speaker.
- A leadership framework – which also has 10 different stages. At each stage you participate in leadership roles in the club to gradually increase your ability to take on roles of responsibility in the club

Who is it for?
Toastmasters is for anyone who would like to improve their communication and leadership skills. If you find public speaking challenging then Toastmasters is a proven and tested solution that will help you no matter how difficult you find public speaking. To develop any skill you must practice that skill and it’s the same with public speaking.
Toastmasters is a forum to help you practice public speaking in a supportive environment. At Toastmasters it doesn’t matter if you forget part of your speech or if you get nervous, what’s important is that you practice and over time your confidence and skill will improve.
The club has members of all skill levels and you will be encouraged to improve your skills at a pace that you are comfortable with and you will only give a speech when you are ready to do so.
