What our members say
Toastmasters International has given me so many opportunities to grow personally & professionally. From tiny roles to major roles, you can find the right amount of challenges to stretch your speaking and leadership potential. I feel especially at home with Mercury Club because we are a community of international, open-minded, creative and yes, caring! bunch of people. Join us!
It was great and very inspiring. All the contestants delivered great speeches and had different styles... Loved it!
I am a big fan of Toastmasters! Whenever I feel down, and I attend the meeting, it never fails to give me a confidence and happiness-boost.
World Class Speeches! That's what we got last night. Every time I hear a Toastmaster speak I learn something new - how to deal with challenges, how to conquer fear, how to live life more fully. Sometimes the speeches are more informational - an explanation of climate change; an introduction to 3D printing. Learning in 7 minute chunks teaches me about the value of economy.
Toastmasters provides a safe and supportive environment where people can practice delivering speeches. It provides a place to experiment, a place to succeed and a place to improve. It’s also the single most cost-effective way to get speech training. On a personal level, I continue to be an active member of Toastmasters because it helps me communicate more effectively not only as a speaker, but as a business professional. I encourage you to join us!<< PrevNext >>
