Event description


Want to have fun, be encouraged and develop your public speaking and leadership skills?

Then you’ve come to the right place!

Confident female speaker

"I wasn’t born a leader. They were all around me though. In the community, at work, at school. Leaders were everywhere. They were the heads of families, coaches of teams, business leaders, mentors, organizational decision-makers.

I admired these leaders. They influenced who I was and who I was becoming. Whatever they did professionally or how they became what they were, I aspired to walk in their footsteps.

And, so, I committed myself to becoming one.

Finally, it came to me. It wasn’t just what leaders knew that enabled them to lead. They had a voice. They could tell their story. They could listen and answer. They didn’t just accomplish, they communicated.

So I set out to find my voice. Learn to process information on my toes. I needed to learn to listen. Learn to give feedback — and accept it. I needed to organize, plan, deliver, follow up. I needed a place where all the ingredients were there, and someone would guide me along the way.

I found that place. I found a community of learners and the path to leadership.

I am a leader — and I was made."

Since 1924, Toastmasters International has helped over four million people transform their careers and impress their friends & family by becoming more effective communicators and leaders.

Capital Communicators is Scotland's oldest Toastmasters club where members have been learning-by-doing in order to hone their public speaking and leadership skills in a supportive and positive environment since 1995.
