Toulouse Speakers – Toastmasters Club


Toastmasters International (TI) is a non-profit educational organization which was founded in the United States in 1924. In this era of technology, it has been transformed into a thought that speakers talk about whenever the topic of public speaking and improving one’s language comes up. Till now, 4 million people have taken advantage of the services that this organization offers and currently serves 364,000 members, with more than 16,000 clubs, across 145 countries. Members are comprised of people from all walks of life, including business people, professionals and students.

Every Toastmasters club follows the same time-tested educational programs. These programs are continually updated to meet participants’ needs. The self-paced programs allow members to progress as rapidly or gradually as one’s needs dictate.

Toulouse Speakers Club. Toulouse Speakers Club, situated in Toulouse, France is one of the many Toastmasters clubs. It is an English Speaking club dedicated to Beginner and Advanced Speakers. At Toulouse Speakers, members learn by speaking in front of an audience and working with fellow members in a supportive environment.

How does it work?

The meeting is organized every two weeks on Mondays from 19h15 to 21h15. The year 2020 was tough for everyone, we stuck together and organized meetings online via Zoom to support each other during the confinement. Since the year 2022, we are having our meetings in a hybrid format (online and offline). Toastmasters meetings have a proper structure with a theme, and many meeting roles such as host, evaluator, timer and many more. In each of our meetings, the members can take different meeting roles according to his/her project requirement.

Every member gets an opportunity to speak and practice:

Prepared Speech – For this role, a member should be on Pathways and present speeches based on the requirements. The speeches are focused on organization, vocal variety, body language etc.

Impromptu Speaking – This comes under the Table Topics session in which members including guests are given an opportunity to talk for 1 to 2 minutes without any preparation.

Evaluations – Every prepared speaker is assigned an evaluator who points out speech strengths and offers suggestions for improvement. Speech Evaluators learn to provide effective and constructive feedback to others.

We believe in hard work and teamwork because public speaking cannot be learned in one day, it takes time. Here at Toastmasters, members build speaking and leadership skills by organizing and conducting meetings and motivating others to help them. Just as Toastmasters members learn to speak simply by speaking, they learn leadership by leading

Guests are always welcome to attend for free, members have to pay a one-time fee of 25 euros and 50 euros as a membership fee every semester (as of the year 2022).
