Why You Should Choose Avalon Beach Toastmasters!

At Avalon Beach Toastmasters Club, we believe in positive encouragement, genuinely care and actively seek to build your confidence. We also like fun 🙂

What Can I Expect?
Meetings are currently on zoom. Wow will be returning to a hybrid mix of zoom and in person soon. Regardless of whether you join us as a guest on zoom or in person, you can expect a warm welcome. You will see or sit with one with of us (see above).
Meetings are split into two halves and run to an agenda. Most evenings, members will either have a prepared speech or a role to fulfil and you will witness speaking and leadership being put to work.
Every speaker and member with a role gets evaluated. This is how we all grow. Sometimes you may hear an ‘educational’ talk from a member, designed to help us upskill in particular areas and members from other clubs attend and may speak from time to time.
In case you feel intimidated, DON’T! We all came to Toastmasters because we wanted to improve. No-one at Avalon Beach Toastmasters Club is perfect and we’re all at different levels. However, every one of us is committed to personal growth and genuinely helping each other grow as we grow too.
Don’t struggle to communicate, putting off speaking opportunities or feeling unable or unwilling to speak up for yourself, your team or family. You CAN learn to be a better communicator and you CAN strengthen your ability to lead.
Come along and see if Avalon Beach Toastmasters Club is a perfect fit for you!
