City Early Start is the 6 F's Club - Fast, Focused, Flexible, Friendly, Feedback and Fun club with members from all walks of life, and nationalities.

City Early Start is a modern Toastmasters club very focused on helping members to develop their confidence and achieve awards while taking the Toastmasters journey towards greater confidence and personal growth. We guarantee to improve your communication and leadership skills especially in those impromptu speaking moments. Improving the skills and abilities you already have could be the next step in your own personal growth and a step up the ladder in your career.

Testimonials from 2 Club Members

"Thank you Toastmasters for helping me build my confidence and prepare great presentations. Everyone at work is impressed with my professional approach and timekeeping abilities now. A great boost to my career opportunities." - Steff

"Initially I thought "no way" this is way out of my comfort zone. I could see the benefits that Toastmasters offer as I was one never to speak in a group situation. I began to love it and now look forward to the weekly morning - get up and go rush". - Penny
