Toastmasters International is a non-profit educational organization, established almost 90 years ago in 1924 in USA that teaches public speaking and leadership skills through a worldwide network of meeting locations. Nowadays Toastmasters International has 15,400 clubs in 135 countries with more than 332,000 members. Globally nearly three million people of all ages and occupations have participated in the club programs.
„I´ve joined the Toastmasters to help my speaking skills. I wanted to feel comfortable when speaking in front of a big audience and learn how to effectively get to the point. What I like most about the Toastmasters is its friendly supportive atmosphere – we are all learning, we are all open to giving and receiving an honest and constructive feedback”, says Jan Kozak, member of MSD Prague Toastmaster.
Our MSD Prague Toastmasters club was chartered in March 2015 thanks to an initiative of its mentors Lukáš Liebich and Jan Moravec. The club organizes regular meetings every Tuesday and twice a month on Wednesdays, which is the most frequent of clubs based in Prague. Members of the club participate in Toastmaster contests at Area (Prague) level, in addition to regular meetings and speeches.
„It is amazing how much you can learn in these one-hour Toastmasters meetings. You learn by doing – as we say in the Club “every toastmaster journey starts with a single speech!“ The experience is very enjoyable. We encourage you to come and try yourself”, says Jan Moravec, President of MSD Prague Toastmasters.
