Description

Toastmasters has arrived in Didcot! Join us for our next meeting and see how we work together to develop our speaking and leadership skills.

Didcot Speakers meet on the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month at 19:15 for a 19:30 start. We also have a brand new home so, going forward, we will now be meeting at UTC Oxfordshire. Please join us and bring a friend along too!

Become the Speaker and Leader You Want to Be!

How Toastmasters Works

At Toastmasters, members learn by speaking to groups and working with others in a supportive environment. A typical Toastmasters club is made up of 20 to 30 people who meet twice a month for approximately two hours.

Each meeting gives everyone an opportunity to practice:

  • Conducting meetings. Members learn how to plan and conduct meetings.
  • Giving impromptu speeches. Members present one-to-two-minute impromptu speeches on assigned topics.
  • Presenting prepared speeches. Members present speeches based on projects in the Toastmasters education program. Projects cover topics such as speaking, organization, vocal variety, language, gestures and persuasion.
  • Offering constructive evaluation. Every member giving a prepared speech is assigned an evaluator who identifies speech strengths and offers suggestions for improvement.

The Tools Toastmasters Use

Upon joining Toastmasters, each new member receives a variety of resources on how to become a better speaker and a more confident leader. Members also have access to other materials and educational resources. In addition, they receive the award-winning Toastmaster, a monthly magazine that offers the latest insights on speaking and leadership techniques.

Toastmasters and Leadership

Leadership cannot be learned in a day. It takes practice. In Toastmasters, members learn leadership skills by organising and conducting meetings, and by completing education projects. The projects address skills such as listening, planning, team-building and motivating others, and they give members the opportunity to practice such skills. Just as Toastmasters members learn to speak by speaking, they learn leadership by leading.

Attending a club meeting is free

Toastmasters meetings are always free to guests and to visiting Toastmasters but you need to be a paid-up member to subscribe to the Toastmasters education programme and participate fully in our club. We're offering free tickets but if you're in a position to be able to make a modest donation to help us cover the costs of our meetings whilst our club is in its formative stage, it would be received gratefully.
