Learn vital skills through a worldwide network of Toastmaster clubs

Each week, Toastmasters helps more than a quarter million people of every ethnicity, education and profession build their competence in communication so they can gain the confidence to lead others.

“To get promoted, you may need to become a better presenter and more confident team leader. You may need the ability to talk and answer questions off the cuff,” says Shae McWilliams, president of East Bay Toastmasters. “All these skills can be learned in the supportive setting of a local Toastmasters meeting.”
