Why Toastmasters

Watching world-famous film director Michael Bay completely screw up at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show makes you realize that good public speaking makes you a badass!

Toastmasters provides a supportive and productive environment to practice screwing up, so you can…

Be a superhero in the real world!

Because in the real world, your boss is counting on you, management looks to you for leadership, co-workers seek your insight, and your team is hungry for inspiration. The fear of public speaking prevents you, your company and your team from succeeding.

Separate yourself from the kids!™

Unlike in the real world, Toastmasters is the perfect place to practice screwing up. Nobody laughs at you – or behind your back – during a Toastmasters meeting. It’s a safe space to build your confidence and hone your public speaking skills. Toastmasters gives you that extra edge for the real world.
