A typical Toastmasters meeting

Many people think that Toastmasters is just about speeches. As you can see from this example program there's a lot more to a typical Toastmasters meeting.

There are usually 2 planned speeches that are given a part of each Toastmaster's continued education program. So that we involve everyone, there are also several other roles in the meeting to give them an opportunity to practice speaking and develop their leadership skills. Evaluations are extremely important at Toastmasters and we also have Table Topics - 1 minute impromptu talks which are extremely valuable and keep everyone on their toes!

Site revamp

We've done a bit of a site revamp. The old site on freetoasthost has now been cut down to the bare minimum with links to this site as the main site. We have added some useful links to this site and plan to post a lot more news and articles from now on.

For information on our meetings and most importantly RSVP - please take a look at the Meetup site, Meetup is a great way to organise events and has the benefit of being very good drawing people in from the local area with similar interests.
