Area 1 is growing and through our incredibly supportive, friendly clubs and fantastic Toastmasters International communication and leadership programme.  

Strategically sited along the beautiful coastal and inland belts of Hampshire, our four public Clubs are Wessex Speakers - Winchester, Hamwic Speakers - Southampton, Spinnaker Speakers - Southsea and Solent Speakers - Fareham and corporate club Tech Data in Basingstoke.            

Our community clubs are on track to achieve2017-18 Area goals of:

  1. Reaching their highest possible levels of performance;
  2. Strengthening individual club mentoring programmes;
  3. Developing at least one new club in the area (we are helping Area 42's Salisbury Club so have diverted slightly on this goal);
  4. Encourage inter-club communications and events to share great practice and continually improve overall quality.
Key events in this year's diary have included
  • Club Officer Training - Saturday 5th August 2017 
  • Area 1 Humourous Speech and Table Topics Autumn Contest - Saturday 7th October 2017
  • Club Officer Training - Saturday Jan 13th 2018
  • Area 1 International Speech and Evaluation Contest - Saturday 7th April 2018

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.

Home club: Hamwic Speakers :       



When I joined Arun Speakers in 2001 I knew I would get the help I needed to improve my
speaking skills. I had no idea how much more Toastmasters would give me. Over the
(many!) following years I have gained immensely in terms of my self-confidence and my
leadership skills. Those in turn opened up many opportunities for me, in my professional
life, in my personal life, and in contributing to a number of charitable organisations that I
have been involved with.

Each member has a different underlying reason for wanting to improve their
communication and leadership skills – their deeper purpose. It may take months or years
to reach their goal, and as stewards of their progress we must provide the best
opportunities and support through the District Officers, Club Officers, other members, and
appropriate tools and information. You will find that easySpeak is an excellent resource to
support you in your Toastmasters journey.

People often ask me why I have stayed a member for so long. One reason is that I am still
learning – I learn something new at every club meeting and every time I speak to other
members. Most of all though, it is the individual stories of our members, and their
achievements, that continue to inspire me. I look forward to hearing your story.
Changing lives – one speech at a time.
