FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does Toastmasters work?
Unlike many classes on public speaking and leadership, which focus on theory alone, Toastmasters members gain first hand experience by practicing what they learn. We practice a proven learn-by-doing approach by guiding our members in building skills and experiences starting with basics and gradually advancing. Members move at their own pace to reach their goals, supported and motivated by leaders and fellow community members.
