Kaiapoi Toastmasters
Address: Where they meet
Kaiapoi Club Bistro
113 Raven Quay, Kaiapoi 7630
Business Description:

First of all, some important points:.
   ►  you will never be pressured or pushed into anything
   ►  you will always be given positive feedback and support
   ►  Toastmasters welcomes everyone from all backgrounds
   ►  we’re non-profit

A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere.

There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success.

Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop skills related to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedure.

Members learn communication skills by working in the Competent Communication manual, a series of 10 self-paced speaking assignments designed to give you the foundation in public speaking.
