The Benefits

“Every great leader tends to be able to command a podium, entertain a crowd, articulate their ideas to the masses.  I’m not one to be shy, but I felt that I could improve my speaking – and Toastmasters provided the perfect opportunity.  Ever since I’ve been learning to speak clearer, more interactively, and most importantly, interestingly.” – Matt

“Even on the first evening I showed up as a guest to the Capital Toastmasters Club at the end of June 2013, I immediately determined that this is a group I can trust — to learn from, and learn with. Each member was very welcoming. As I closely watched club members interact, I sensed their support and respect for each other. Listening to them speak, I took note of various styles that I knew I could model from. I also observed how club members seemed very forthright in providing objective assessments of each others` performance. This is a club that does not only promote mutual learning but cultivates mutual camaraderie by having pizza meals together during breaks, and holding “post-toasties“ pub events after the meeting. I am happy and proud to be a member of this club.”-Emily

“Toastmasters works!  It has helped me feel more confident and effective in meetings and other day-to-day dealings with co-workers and peers.  At $100 per year, it is a bargain, and members can progress at their own pace.  My only regret about Toastmasters is that I didn’t join sooner.” – Peter

“I moved to Ottawa last fall and was looking for a way to meet people, and improve my professional skills. I do a lot of public speaking and facilitation for my work, so Toastmasters seemed to be the perfect fit. The members are very encouraging, I’ve received very helpful feedback, and I enjoy the social aspect of heading to a pub after the meetings. And, I’ve improved my confidence when speaking in front of groups, both large and small!” – Melanie
