Build valuable leadership and communication skills

OUR MISSION

U+ Toastmasters is a non-profit organization that provides individuals with the opportunity to enhance their public speaking and leadership skills.

 

As a group, individuals support each other by completing projects in the Toastmasters Competent Communication and Competent Leadership manuals and enriching the lives of individuals as well as improving their well-being.

HOW WE DO IT

As a group, individuals support each other by completing projects in the Toastmasters Competent Communication and Competent Leadership manuals. 

 

These projects encourage individuals to practice new skills through a variety of activities, whether it be a goal-focused speech or taking on a leadership role at a meeting. Individuals build confidence by leading the meeting, signing up to give a speech, and practicing impromptu speaking while gaining feedback.

BUILD COMFORT AND CONFIDENCE WITH PUBLIC SPEAKING

Public speaking is about getting your message across. Once we've figured out a way for our thoughts and ideas to be heard, it builds the confidence needed to deliver the speech or presentation.

IMPROVE SOFT SKILLS THAT MAKE YOU MORE ATTRACTIVE TO RECRUITERS

In a competitive job market, you’ll find yourself competing with others who have the same technical skills as you. Improving your soft skills is the best way to discern yourself from the other candidates.
