If you have to talk in your business - whether to co-workers or to customers - it pays to do it well. Extemporaneous speaking teaches you to think on your feet: a key skill in business communications around the office or on the road.
Toastmasters offers a supportive, collegial environment for learning to communicate effectively while improving your leadership skills. Try us out for free, meet some great University Club Members, and see how you can take your business communication skills to the next level!

Participation in Toastmasters is designed to sharpen the skills of novice and experienced speakers alike. Exercises focus on all the myriad aspects of speechifying, including use of props, extemporaneous speaking, projection and vocal variety, body language, engaging people and, of course, giving a toast.
