Through its worldwide network of clubs, Toastmasters helps nearly 280,000 people communicate effectively and achieve the confidence to lead others. Toastmasters is a place where you develop and grow—both personally and professionally. You join a community of learners, and in Toastmasters meetings we learn by doing. Whether you’re an executive or a stay-at-home parent, a college student or a retiree, you will improve yourself; building skills to express yourself in a variety of situations. You’ll open up a world of new possibilities: giving better work presentations; leading meetings—and participating in them, more confidently; speaking more smoothly off the cuff; even handling one-on-one interactions with family, friends and colleagues more positively. Northside Toastmasters is a club of like-minded individuals, who meet once a week, and use a proven methodology to help its members to become accomplished public speakers.
