Each Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking, interpersonal communications, and leadership skills by giving a prepared or impromptu speech or taking on a role such a evaluator, grammarian or timekeeper. There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting and the curriculum is self-paced. Members evaluate each other’s presentations in a constructive yet positive format; this friendly feedback process is a key part of the program’s success.
