Welcome to Area 62!
Area 62 covers the South West of England. Our clubs include:
- Armada Speakers Club - Plymouth
- North Avon Speakers Club - Bristol
- South West Speakers Club - Exeter
- Bath Spa Toastmasters Club - Bath
- Bristol Central Speakers - Bristol City
- Tamar Speakers - Launceston
In addition, we have one pre-charter club in the city of Bristol and Tamar Toastmasters, the very first club for Cornwall to be launched in September, 2016.
Despite the size of the Area, the Area’s Clubs share a strong sense of common identity and enjoy a healthy level of interaction, with all the benefits of shared best practice. Area 62 is now an established and thriving part of Toastmasters International, ready to expand the borders and fill in the gaps with linguistic excellence and leadership.
If you would like to increase your speaking ability, improve your confidence or simply to see what we’re all about, then I urge to you to visit one of our clubs. You are assured of a warm welcome, plenty of fun and the chance to meet some friendly, helpful and interesting people.
We never forget that the first step is the hardest, and all of our clubs will go out of their way to make newcomers feel welcome and to dispel their nervousness.
My role as Area Director is to help and advise the clubs in any way and to act as the link between them and the wider Toastmasters Organisation. Specific jobs include organising contests and conducting regular visits to offer guidance and spread best practice together with Club Officer Training.
The Leadership track is equally important and allows you to practise Leadership skills in a safe environment and to improve those skills for the benefit of all around you - in the family, at work and at play.
Please contact or me with any questions you have or for any further information about Area 62 clubs or Toastmasters International. You will not regret taking the all important first step!
