About

First Oakville Toastmasters is a non-profit organization which gives its members the opportunity to improve public speaking abilities, presentation skills, meetings mastery, and overall confidence in oneself.  The mission of our club is to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every member has the opportunity to develop communication and leadership skills, which in turn fosters self-confidence and personal growth.

Guests are always welcome…no need to call ahead – just drop in and see how this forum can help you, as it has helped so many others.

First Oakville Toastmasters meets on Thursday evenings, starting on the Thursday following Labour Day in September and ending for a summer break on the Thursday preceding Victoria Day in May.  On the 3rd Thursday* of each month, the club conducts meetings in a dinner meeting setting.

See our Club Schedule Tab to review our schedule for the  season.

At First Oakville Toastmasters, members learn by speaking to groups and by working with mentors in a supportive environment.  A typical Toastmasters meeting is made up of 20 to 30 people who meet once a week for approximately 2 hours.  Each meeting gives everyone an opportunity to practice conducting meetings, giving impromptu speeches, presenting prepared speeches, and offering constructive evaluation.

Experienced professionals and beginning speakers alike can benefit from our practical, face-to-face learning program.  Whether you’re speaking to the board of directors, your customers, your co-workers, or your kids, Toastmasters can help you do it better.  You’ll learn and practice in a friendly, comfortable environment with people who are there for the same reason you are – to become better communicators.

  1. Can you please give me an idea of the membership costs before I start attending…even as a guest. If it is beyond my reach I don’t want to make the effort to go. Thanks!

  2. I’d be interested in popping by — your website schedule is not up-to-date for 2011.

    Would someone be able to email me a schedule for this year?
