Speaking Clubs and Associations


Toastmasters

Toastmasters is an amazing organization that helps you learn how to run meetings and do presentations. It’s quite inexpensive and it’s been the training ground for thousands of successful speakers. Clubs are available in most urban areas and membership is open to just about anyone at any skill level. The clubs are run by volunteers, so they can vary, depending on the makeup of the membership and executive. About the only real criticism I can level at Toastmasters is that I find some groups a little too formal, but that’s not a criticism of the organization. I think the concept is super. And there are enough clubs that if your nearest club is a tad stuffy or a little too loose for your personal taste, you’ll probably find another one nearby that suits you better.
