Reasons To Join Innisfree Toastmasters Club

reasons for joining

Here are some of the top reasons joining Innisfree Toastmasters Club.

HELP AND GUIDANCE

Some of the reasons stated by our members include: Help and guidance for presentations for work or college, wedding speeches (best man, either wedding partner or father of the bride), enhancing their leadership skills for career advancement and personal development or simply joining and becoming part of a friendly and entertaining community.

PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Self Confidence

Many people struggle with self-confidence. Self-confidence and effective communication can be learned, with Innisfree Toastmasters we will equip you with the means for effective communication and improve your self-confidence and look like a professional public speaker as you will be able to capture your audience’s attention and interest.

LEADERSHIP SKILLS

Toastmaster clubs are designed to maximise opportunities for leadership. You can participate in different roles such as Toastmaster, evaluator, presenting a speech or even as a mentor to help enhance the skills of fellow members.

COMMUNICATION SKILLS IMPROVEMENT

With practice and support in our club meetings you will improve your communication skills in a supportive and friendly environment.

If making impromptu speeches is your weak area, then Table Topics is for you. We will coach you through this and make it fun at the same time.

Several Toastmaster roles test and improve your ability to listen to and summarise what people are saying.

ENHANCE YOUR PROFESSIONAL LIFE

One of the skill Innisfree Toastmasters club will help you to improve on are organisational skills. You will enhance your sense of self control and competence, and increase your energy and productivity levels – all of which are prerequisites for success.

We’ll applaud you – It’s a tradition, each time you take to the podium, everyone gives you a round of applause – It’s our clubs way of saying “thank you for being brave”.

HAVE FUN!

We are a warm welcoming, positive and enthusiastic group with a variety of backgrounds. We share a common goal – to get better at public speaking.

Visitors are welcome at any club meeting to be a spectator or to join in, to ask questions and to enjoy the Innisfree Toastmaster community spirit!

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
