Who we are
We are a group of ordinary people who come together at a Toastmasters Club near Victoria on Tuesday evenings to improve our public speaking skills. Our aim is to empower individuals to become confident public speakers.
Public Speaking is one of the hardest things for most people to do, let alone become fantastic at. Our club provides an encouraging environment where our members can develop their skills quickly and to a high standard.
While we are an individual Toastmaster club in the Westminster area of London, we are registered as part of the Toastmaster International Organisation and follow all the guidelines and programs laid out by this great establishment.
Members of our club near London Victoria develop their skills to the highest standard to:
- Deliver engaging, powerful presentations at work
- Give humorous or heartfelt speeches at personal events
- Become great leaders by gaining the skills to influence others
- Become stronger personalities by eliminating social fears
- Deal with more situations powerfully responding effectively
We have a complete mix of skills and experience at our Toastmasters Club near London Victoria and no matter whether people are just starting out, or are already established public speakers, everyone benefits from following the Educational Program and practicing regularly.
Formed in September 2014, London Victorian Toastmasters club has been going from strength to strength. In 2016 we hosted a workshop from the then Toastmaster’s world champion of public speaking, Mohammed Qahtani; we are the home club of the current District 91 District Director, who leads the 170 Toastmasters clubs and 5,000+ Toastmasters members all over London and Southern Britain, Florian Bay (who was our founding President); and we are one of the few London clubs that meet every week.
We have also been awarded Toastmaster International’s highest possible recognition award for club success and are known as a President Distinguished Club. This award is recognition from Toastmasters International that we run our club effectively and most importantly our members improve their skills and complete the various educational programs which suit their experience level.
The growth and external recognition of our Toastmaster Club gives our new members a the best possible opportunity to learn quickly and become part of something great.
We are part of Toastmasters International which is a non-profit educational corporation. Its mission is to improve communication and leadership skills of its members and in general. Mainly, this works out to ‘improving public speaking skills’ but there is also a potent leadership and management aspect to the organisation if you aspire to reach that level.
The organisation includes approximately 313,000 members in 126 countries and we are part of a growing network of over sixty Toastmasters clubs in London.
