Toastmasters International is a worldwide, nonprofit educational organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills in a friendly, noncompetitive atmosphere.
A typical meeting features prepared and impromptu speeches of varying lengths, along with meeting-leadership opportunities. Each member proceeds at his or her own pace; there is no pressure to speak.
Membership is inexpensive. Visitors are always welcome.
