Join Innisfree Toastmasters Sligo

Build Personal and Professional Self Confidence

Self Confidence and Effective Communication are extremely important qualities in almost every aspect of our lives, yet so many people struggle with it. The good news is that self-confidence and effective communication really can be learned and built upon. And whether you are working on your own self-confidence or building he confidence of people around you, Toastmasters are well worth the effort!

How to join us

Joining Innisfree Toastmasters is very simple – Firstly to get a flavour of our club, we would encourage you to attend one or two of our meetings (held every 1st and 3rd Wednesday, Sligo Park Hotel 8pm-10pm) as a guest. Do not worry, guests will never feel compelled to speak at any meeting. However, if you do feel like contributing, there will be a chance to do so during the Table Topic session.

“Toastmasters is the best and least expensive personal improvement class you can go to.”

Once you have visited our club, you may (6 guests did last year) feel like joining us. Simply approach any member of the club and they will be more than pleased to guide you in the right direction.

Joining will involve the completion of a membership form and a yearly payment of €70.00 plus an extra €20.00 to pay for the first set of your competent Communicator and Competent Leader manuals. There is also a €5 fee for each meeting you attend to cover the costs of the room hire, tea, coffee and biscuits during the mid-session interval.

Membership is renewed on a yearly basis starting in September. We offer a reduced rate for a limited number of people who may qualify: students OAP’s, job seekers, each case will be considered separately

As a member of Innisfree Toastmasters Sligo, you’ll be joining 270,000 other Toastmasters members around the world, completing a proven set of achievements to develop your skills.

And we’re back…
Our first meeting of 2017 was held on Wed 4th Jan and it was a fun filled night of speaking and indeed some reminiscing as Joss gave us a wonderful talk about “The song that takes you back” and we were treated to the song in question.
I look forward to this becoming a regular feature at our meetings as I am quite sure that all members will have a favourite song which takes them back.
Your Club President, Brian Fallon

Happy New Year
Happy New Year and welcome fellow Toastmasters to a brand new year. I hope this year brings all that you hope for.
The start of a new year can often be a time for goal setting and a nice quote that I read recently and which you might follow throughout the year is:
“Eat when you are hungry,
Drink when you are thirsty,
And sing and dance as often as you can”
I look forward to seeing you all again this year and to lots more exciting meetings.
Your Club President, Brian Fallon
