Toastmasters International is a nonprofit educational organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills through its worldwide network of clubs. The organization exceeds 280,000 members in 144 countries. It was established in 1924, and for almost 100 years, it has helped people from diverse backgrounds become more confident speakers, communicators and leaders.
During Toastmasters’ meetings, which usually are comprised of approximately 20 members, individuals will build on their leadership skills, become confident presenters, and maximize their potential and personal growth to gain a competitive edge in the workplace.
“A Toastmasters chapter at Cleary is an ideal fit for our university and our community,” reports Matt Oliver, associate dean of students at Cleary. “Cleary’s focus as a business school is to teach strong, effective communication skills and ethical leadership techniques so or students will be fully prepared for the ever-changing and competitive workplace. Toastmasters will provide our community with this same opportunity. It is an excellent resource for students, faculty, graduates, employers, employees and the public to sharpen their communication skills, presentation techniques and leadership qualities as well as improving self-confidence,” he adds.
Toastmasters’ focus is on developing leadership potential and effective listening skills, improving management and organizational techniques, and learning how to present ideas more effectively, conduct meetings more productively and motivate others.
