If you live in Hampshire and would like to overcome nerves when presenter, become an effective campaigner or just want to communicate more effectively on a day to day basis, you will be warmly welcomed at your nearest Toastmaster club by people who once felt the same as you and are now fulfilling their dreams. The first three visits are free and there is no obligation to join. Guests almost always tell us they enjoy the friendly feel and sense of fun they find at our clubs.
We are a non-profit organisation and income from fees goes to HQ with any extra being used for educational events and venue hire. Joining the organisation gives you unprecedented access to exceptional communication/leadership mentors, professional feedback on your speeches and a diverse network of interesting people.
