You have completed the first to step toward becoming a better communicator by simply coming to this web page especially made for you. Toastmasters is not solely about public speaking, but rather, effective communication.

Communication is much more than an exchange of words or ideas between two or more parties; it is the base from which all decisions are made in life. Toastmasters International is unique because there is another half to effective communication equally important as speaking, and that is, listening.

Listening through conducting evaluations is not only conducive to becoming a better listener, but it is at the heart of how we become better communicators here at Toastmasters International . Whether it be between husband and wife or between east and west, the value of effective communication is immeasurable.

Toastmasters International creates a medium in which one can learn to, foremost, speak confidently. In addition, you will learn the power of gestures and voice variation. Say what you mean not only succinctly, but with impact. Persuade with power and speak to inspire by using the tools and feedback you'll learn as you follow the program. Toastmasters goes even further by not only helping you to become an effective communicator, but also to become a notable leader.
