Toastmasters clubs provide a place to learn communication and leadership skills in a friendly club environment. Our club has a relaxed, informal atmosphere. Our meetings take approximately an hour which usually includes 1-2 prepared speeches, some time for short impromptu speeches and evaluations of all speeches. Evaluations provide positive feedback, with plenty of encouragement. Everyone gets an opportunity to speak in front of an audience, there is however no pressure to do so. We also usually have a drink after the meeting.

Our members are made up of mainly professional people, including scientists, teachers and business people; however we encourage people from all walks of life, as this gives a great balance to the meetings.
