Paddington Toastmasters started in 2015. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month between 18:00 and 19:30, arriving by 17:50 helps us get started on time! You'll find us at 40 Eastbourne Terrace, a two minute walk from Paddington station. All guests are welcome and there's no need to prepare or bring anything with you. Simply come along and get a feel for what goes on!
We kick off our meetings with impromptu speeches (Table Topics) in which volunteers are asked to answer a question on a random topic for a period of one to two minutes – great practice for those real life situations where you're put on the spot! The second half of the meeting focusses on prepared speeches – this involves members delivering a planned speech on a topic of their choice for between five and seven minutes. The all-important speech evaluations are provided throughout the session.
If you're looking for a friendly club with an informal feel then look no further!
