WHAT IS BARCELONA TOASTMASTERS CLUB?

Barcelona Toastmasters Club is the first Toastmasters club in Barcelona.

We have been helping our members to become better speakers and leaders, both in their professional and personal life, since 2003.

Our sessions are both, in English and Spanish, every other Wednesday, and there are more than 40 members with different age, profession, background and nationality.

Barcelona Toastmasters is much more than a public speaking club. In this club, our members share their hobbies, experiences and personal and professional challenges. As well as participating in the preparation of social and cultural events, such as workshops and … parties!

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM A SESSION?

If you really want to know what it is like to be in a Toastmasters Barcelona session, you will need to come andvisit us. For now, we can only say that there are 5 things that are always, always present in our sessions:
PREPARED SPEECHES
You will be able to enjoy speeches prepared by the club members, with the aim of improving different aspects of public speaking, which are included in the manuals: Structure, Body Language, Vocal Variety, Storytelling, Humour, Sales…
TABLE TOPICS
Imagine: Stepping-up to make a mini speech about a topic that you will not even know about previously, in front of an audience! An excellent opportunity to improve improvisation, temper your nerves and learn to think very quick.
FEEDBACK
Feedback between members helps to reinforce those things we are best at, and to focus more in those things we still need to improve. Learning to perform positive and constructive feedback is fundamental in our club.
ROLES
Today you are the presenter of the session and tomorrow you will be the timekeeper. There are several roles that need to be covered every session, and these are done by different club members. This way, we all improve our communication and leadership skills.
APPLAUSE
You better be ready: in TM we applaud, a lot! We believe that each public presentation deserves it. Applauses is our way to tell each other: well done! Keep it up!
