Our goal is to use speeches and feedback amongst our members to help each other grow and develop as public speakers. The group is open to anyone who is interested.
We meet once a week for an hour. Meetings involve a few members giving prepared speeches, impromptu speeches and feedback/suggestions. In general, we're people that realize that presentation and speaking skills are great tools for success and are working together to improve our abilities in these areas.
Guests are welcomed to attend a few meetings at no charge. Our next meeting will be Thursday, February 1st, 12PM in Bentall Four in the Absolute Software office (1055 Dunsmuir street, suite 14). In this session, we will be conducting an InfoSession/Q&A on Pathways-the new Toastmasters leadership track. If you'd like to attend and see what we are about, or have any questions please feel free to contact for details.

With around 60 members striving to improve their speaking skills, the Vancouver Toastmasters Club (#59) is a group of people supporting each other as we navigate our way through the speech projects of our Toastmasters manuals. Gradually, each of us gets better week by week as we take small steps towards speaking confidently in front of a group.
We welcome new members who share a desire to improve their public speaking skills, reach personal goals, and help others gain confidence. Guests are welcome to attend our meetings any time to learn more about the Toastmaster experience.
