Toastmasters for Staff

  • Are you interested in developing your public speaking skills in a comfortable environment with colleagues?
  • Would you commit to attending meetings on a regular basis to get to know your colleagues and practice?

What is Toastmasters?

A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere.

There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another's presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program's success.

Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop skills related to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedure.


Learning and Organizational Development will cover the chartering fee.
Employee Cost: $25 new member sign up fee + $120 annual dues.


Please complete this Toastmasters Application Form and issue a cheque to ‘Wilfrid Laurier University’ for $145. Once completed, please send it to Samantha Cook in Human Resources.
