Talk for Change provides public speaking and leadership practice and training. As a Toastmasters club, we follow the Toastmasters International curriculum, which has been developed for over 80 years. We aim to provide the nonprofit sector with as many adept communicators and leaders as possible.
Our mission is to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every individual member has the opportunity to develop oral communication and leadership skills, which in turn foster self-confidence and personal growth.
What’s in it for you?
Toastmasters will give you the skills and confidence you need to effectively express yourself in any situation. Toastmasters is the most efficient, enjoyable and affordable way of gaining great communication skills. By learning to effectively formulate and express your ideas, you open an entirely new world of possibilities. You’ll be more persuasive and confident when giving presentations, and you’ll improve your one-on-one dealings with others.
How does it work?
Don’t worry! Everyone in a Talk For Change was once at the level you are now. The environment is friendly and supportive, and the self-paced program allows you to build confidence with each speaking assignment.
Constructive evaluation is the heart of the Toastmasters program. Each time you give a prepared speech, a peer evaluator will point out strengths and suggest improvements. At first you’ll be applauded for your effort; later you’ll be applauded for your skill.
Whether in the boardroom or in the classroom, public speaking skills are essential to success.
