What is Toastmasters?

Hello everyone, this is Y.T, President of Visionaries TMC.

I have been a member of this club, or Toastmasters, for three years. I really enjoy our activities and would recommend many people to start Toastmasters journey. However, as soon as I introduce Toastmasters to my friends or colleagues, any people just say, “What the hell is Toastmasters…?” So, today, I’d like to introduce what Toastmasters is.

Toastmasters International websites says about itself as the follows:

“Toastmasters International is a non-profit educational organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills through a worldwide network of clubs. Headquartered in Englewood, Colo., the organization’s membership exceeds 358,000 in more than 16,800 clubs in 143 countries. Since 1924, Toastmasters International has helped people from diverse backgrounds become more confident speakers, communicators, and leaders.”


As you can see, Toastmasters is an international organization originated in the US and it aims to develop public speaking skills and leadership. It’s not a cult group:)

If you would like to know more about Toastmasters, check the Toastmasters International website or Japanese divisions’ website!
