DO YOU WANT TO LEARN TO PRESENT BETTER?
Do you want to learn to speak with ease in front of groups, present yourself in a professional manner, and work on your leadership skills?
Search no further! There are currently more than 40 Toastmasters clubs in the Netherlands where you can practice public speaking in an accessible, safe and inspiring way. In these bi-weekly meetings, Toastmasters come together to improve their speaking skills by receiving educational and constructive feedback from members. This will help you quickly learn to speak confidently in public.
OVERCOME YOUR FEAR OF SPEAKING
Ever dreamed of giving a TED talk or impress your work colleagues by giving an expertly-done presentation? Would you like to see yourself stand on stage confidently when you have to give a speech?
With Toastmasters you can learn how to do this! You’ll follow an online training (Pathways) that fits your learning goals and you then carry out the assignments during the Toastmasters meetings. As a result, you will not only overcome your fear of speaking, but you will also be challenged to develop yourself into a confident and competent speaker with techniques that you can apply that will inspire an entire room.
Our meetings are full of energy. You learn not only from your own speech but also from others who give speeches. This format allows all of us to help each other and learn faster.
INCREASE YOUR CONFIDENCE
The power of a Toastmaster meeting is that it is fully organized by our members, so you can work on your speaking skills and leadership qualities in an accessible learning-by-doing way.
A Toastmasters meeting always consists of a number of fixed parts:
- Prepared speeches
- Evaluations of the prepared speeches
Guests and members are encouraged (but not required) to actively contribute to our meetings. This way, you immediately improve your speaking skills and your leadership qualities such as listening well, giving feedback or organizing a meeting.
