Welcome to East Herts Speakers

We’re delighted that you have visited our website and taken the first step to find out about East Herts Speakers.

We are an established speakers club, part of the Toastmasters International Organisation, a not for profit organisation run by its members for its members with the goal to empower individuals to become more effective communicators and leaders.  As a Toastmasters International Club, East Herts Speakers provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.

We have around 30 members at the club, from a wide range of backgrounds and of all ages from 18 years and over. Some originally joined to overcome their fear of public speaking, some to help them improve their presentation skills and some simply to improve their communication skills in both personal and professional life.

Through the Toastmasters International learning programme, all members develop their communication and leadership skills, at a pace which suits them. With regular practice and involvement at club meetings we practice these skills in a safe and supportive environment.

Our meetings are run by our members, our meetings are fun, friendly and supportive – the key ingredients which makes learning rewarding, exciting and enjoyable. We encourage and support each other to achieve our personal goals.

At every meeting, by giving speeches, delivering constructive evaluations and receiving feedback, by taking active roles in the running and organisation of our meetings our members build their competence in communication, grow in confidence and gain the experience to lead others.

You can find more information about our club by following the pages on the website or if you would prefer to contact us please do not hesitate to e-mail me directly, I will be delighted to answer any questions you may have about East Herts Speakers Club or Toastmasters International.

To gain an insight in to how East Herts Speakers can help you achieve your goals I invite you to attend one of our meetings as a guest.  Meetings are free of charge to guests, there is no obligation to join or to speak at the meeting if you don’t want to.  It’s your opportunity to experience how the club is run and meet some of our members. You can be sure of a warm and friendly welcome.
