How does Toastmasters work?

We are a club within Toastmasters International and follow a proven meeting structure to improve our skills.

In a typical meeting, we have 3 main sections:

  • Prepared Speeches
  • Table Topics (impromptu speaking for members and guests)
  • Evaluations of prepared speeches

Typical roles in each meeting:

  • Toastmaster: leads the meeting, introduces meeting theme, guests, and Prepared Speakers
  • Prepared Speaker: every speaker is a role model and club members learn from their speeches
  • Table Topics Master: helps meeting attendees develop their impromptu speaking skills
  • General Evaluator: evaluates the entire meeting and introduces each of the Evaluators
  • Evaluator: provides verbal and written feedback to meeting speakers
  • Timer: times speeches and table topics impromptu speaking
  • Ah Counter: notes any overused words and filler words
  • Grammarian: helps club members improve their grammar and vocabulary
