Philadelphia's First Toastmasters

"But, I'm afraid of public speaking! Will I fit in?"

Welcome to a Toastmasters meeting! You've come to the right place. Fear of public speaking is one of the most common fears expressed by most people. Speaking to groups large or small may intimidate or even frighten you. In Toastmasters, you'll learn how to successfully formulate and express your ideas. Some our our members could barely say their name in front of a group of people when they first joined.  Now those same people who found it hard to stand up, find it hard to sit down! How did this happen? Through the preparation and delivery of speeches following the guidelines found in the Competent Communication manual. By following the guidelines found in this manual, members are guided through the preparation and delivery of ten speeches. Starting with the first speech, The Icebreaker, which introduces you to the group, you will learn how to develop and present your speeches.
