Powdermills Toastmasters  
Welcome to Powdermills Toastmasters.

Our members come from many different backgrounds and ages, but our common purpose is to help each other conquer our fear of public speaking while also developing our abilities to speak in public, by delivering speeches with confidence. Public speaking is a fear we all have. But this can be controlled allowing you to express yourself with confidence in any forum, whether its social, business, work or professional development to a high level of delivery. 

As members of Powdermills, we pride ourselves as being friendly and supportive to all. Making that first step is a big ask, one we all went through, but remember we will be with you every step through your journey. 

We meet in Oriel House Hotel, Main Street, Ballincollig, Co. Cork on alternate Wednesdays at 8pm - check out the meeting list for exact dates - guests are welcomed at every meeting. We advise guests to arrive at 7.45pm for an 8pm start. 

If you have any questions please contact: Justin McGurk at:

or send us a message via "Get In Touch" to the right.  We are also on Facebook with videos and photos where you can also "like" or send us a message.

What is Toastmasters About?

Toastmasters International

Is a world leader in communication and leadership development.

Membership in Toastmasters is one of the greatest investments you can make in yourself! 

Do you want to practice and develop your public speaking and leadership skills?

Do you want to be more articulate and confident in your communications?

How Does It Work?

A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants develop their speaking and leadership skills in a non-pressure atmosphere. Currently existing members learn communication skills by working a programme called Pathways. This programme allows the member to tailor their path to suit their individual speaking aspirations. For example, relating to work, professional and career goals or social and community participation. Members also learn leadership skills by taking on various meeting roles and tasks outlined during meetings. These tasks are designed to develop confidence and team participation.

Why Powdermills Toastmasters?

At Powdermills Toastmasters, we promote a positive and protected learning environment where members learn and progress at their own pace. In the Powdermills Club we treat all members, their opinions, feelings and sensibilities with respect and consideration. Each meeting is an enjoyable, well structured and interesting learning experience designed to develop your abilities.

We pride ourselves as being a friendly and inclusive club. We encourage anyone interested in joining Toastmasters to come along and sample this unique learning environment, firstly as a guest to any of our meetings. 

For further information on membership, please contact Justin McGurk, President at:
