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.
