The Toastmasters International web site contains some great videos about public speaking that are quite helpful.

Some TED talks are also quite useful to learn more about communication and leadership. Check out some of the TED talks of interest (under the Home menu) recommended by club members.

The English/French Glossary of Toastmasters terms can be found on the District 61 translation web site.
To help with the pronunciation of English words, go to the Merriam Webster Dictionary web site. For example, check out how to pronounce record when it is a verb versus when it is a noun. Another web site to hear how words are pronounced is Google translate.

If you want to verify specific Canadian spelling of words, as different from American or British spelling, this web page on Canadian, American and British Spelling is a good place to start.

As a club member, you can log in and manage your own participation in meetings, schedule when a speech will be ready, and much more. You can also see who has already signed up for future roles.

Along with the weekly meeting information, you can monitor the speeches you have delivered and are planning to deliver, the leadership projects you have completed, see pictures of club members to put a name to a face and vice versa, as well as get information for each meeting role and club officer roles. Here is a list of basic information to know to get you started. If you have any questions, please contact your mentor or a club officer.

 
Making "mistakes"

A Toastmasters club is a great place to try things out and see the result. It is reported that Thomas Edison failed over 1000 times before coming up with the lightbulb. Did he make 1000 mistakes? Or did he try something out to see the result?

Here is a quote by Valerie Suski, DTM from the March, 2017 Toastmasters magazine about so-called mistakes:

"Most things in life aren’t learned when we do them right; they are learned when we make mistakes. It is the club’s job to create a safe environment where the member can make mistakes and then be guided to learn from those mistakes. Being prepared is great, but sometimes it is idealistic. We need to support our members so they can learn and grow."

 
Are you ready for a table topic?

The table topics part of the meeting help us practice impromptu speaking, that is short unprepared speechs on a topic that we are given.

Check out how to be a table topics speaker and these tips for improving when we are faced with these types of situations.

The Toastmasters Mission
A statement of shared values

Every Toastmasters club shares the same mission, clearly defined in the following mission statement:

We provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater selfconfidence and personal growth.

Through this mission, each Toastmaster gains a clear understanding of the club's purpose, and the organization as a whole benefits from a shared set of values and goals.

Toastmasters Positioning Statement

Since 1924, Toastmasters International has been recognized as the leading organization dedicated to communication and leadership skill development. Through its worldwide network of clubs, each week Toastmasters helps more than a quarter million men and women of every ethnicity, education level and profession build their competence in communication so they can gain the confidence to lead others. 

By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals, leaders emerge. They learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback – and accept it. They find their path to leadership.
