Toastmasters of Istanbul
Founded in 1924, Toastmasters International currently has over 12,500 clubs and more than 250,000 members in approximately 106 countries.
How Toastmasters Works:
At Toastmasters, members learn public presentation skills by speaking to groups and working with others in an environment designed for encourage and improvement. A typical Toastmasters club is made up of 20 to 30 people who meet once or twice a month for about an hour. Each meeting gives everyone an opportunity to practice:
- Conducting meetings: Meetings usually begin with a short business session which helps members learn basic meeting procedures.
- Giving impromptu speeches: Members present one-to two-minute impromptu speeches on assigned topics.
- Presenting prepared speeches: Three or more members present speeches based on projects from the Toastmasters International Communication and Leadership Program manuals. Projects cover such topics as speech organization, voice, language, gestures, and persuasion.
- Offering constructive evaluation: Every prepared speaker is assigned an evaluator who points out speech strengths and offers suggestions for improvement.
They meet twice a month so come as their honored Guest. There is no charge for guests and meetings are in English. Click for more information on meeting times and place and membership.
