THE JOURNEY OF SELF-DEVELOPMENT SHARED TOGETHER

“Learn by doing” is our essence. Toastmasters offers members a safe space where they can practice and improve their communication and leadership skills. Toastmasters´ values are:
  • Respect
  • Integrity
  • Service
  • Excellence
Toastmaster's methodology is divided in 2 learning paths: communication and leadership. Both paths are performed in parallel. There are various projects that need to be completed for each path, through which we work on the following specific competences:
  • Active listening
  • Critical thinking
  • Constructive Feedback
  • Time management
  • Motivation
  • Mentoring
  • Provide structure to the speech
  • Use verbal and nonverbal language
  • Communicate with impact
  • Project the voice
  • Make effective presentations
Through different projects each member can practice their communication and leadership skills. Projects can consist of:
  • Preparing a speech
  • Be a mentor for one of the members
  • Organise an event
  • Perform a role in a session such as:
    • Sergeant at arms
    • Leader of the session
