Welcome to Area 62!
Area 62 covers the South West of England. Our clubs include:
- Armada Speakers Club - Plymouth
- South West Speakers Club - Exeter
- Bristol Central Speakers - Bristol City
- North Avon Speakers Club - Bristol
- Bath Spa Toastmasters Club - Bath
And we are expanding! In an effort to provide more opportunities for budding speakers, we are launching a brand new club in Taunton on Tuesday 10th September 2019.
Despite the size of the Area, all the clubs share a strong sense of common identity and support each other, so we benefit from shared best practice. Area 62 is now a firmly established and thriving part of Toastmasters International, ready to grow even more clubs to make it easier for people in the South West to attend a Club local to them.
Do you want to develop your speaking skills? Do you need to make a presentation at work or attend an interview? Perhaps address a school assembly or lead a team meeting? Or maybe make a wedding speech or give a vote of thanks? Then come along to one of our clubs - meetings are fun, supportive and above all friendly - we all remember feeling nervous about taking that first step and you will be assured of a warm welcome.
The clubs mentioned belong to an form an Area, and to provide a link between them and the wider Toastmasters Organisation there is an Area Director (me!). As well as visiting the clubs on a regular basis it's my job to provide guidance where needed, as well as organzing twice yearly club contests and ensuring the Leadership Team in each club are trained so they know how to make club meetings interesting and varied and can support the members so they achieve their personal speaking goal..
So as well as improving your speaking skills, Toastmasters offers you the opportunity to also increase you Leadership skills. Skills that you can take back to share with your business, community or family.
So take the first step - contact your nearest club and find out for yourself the benefits of becoming a member of this growing community of speakers and leaders.
