Toastmasters

Join now!

River’s Edge Toastmasters is a community club. We meet the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month from 8 - 9:15 am at the Clay County Chamber of Commerce located at 1734 Kingsley Avenue in Orange Park, Florida.

 

Toastmasters is a great way to develop better communication and listening skills, as well as leadership skills that can help your career! Learn how to:

  • Excel at job interviews.
  • Give powerful business presentations.
  • Effectively teach training sessions.
  • Lead successful seminars.
  • Present persuasive opening arguments, summations, etc..
  • Give humorous, informative or special occasion speeches.

     

From a humble beginning in 1924 at the YMCA in Santa Ana, California, Toastmasters International has grown to become a world leader in helping people become more competent and comfortable in front of an audience. The nonprofit organization now has nearly 260,000 members in over 12,500 clubs in 113 countries, offering a proven – and enjoyable! – way to practice and hone communication and leadership skills.

Most Toastmasters meetings are comprised of approximately 20 people who meet weekly for an hour or two. Participants practice and learn skills by filling a meeting role, ranging from giving a prepared speech or an impromptu one to serving as timer, evaluator, or grammarian.

There is no instructor; instead, each speech and meeting is critiqued by a member in a positive manner, focusing on what was done right and what could be improved.
