Achievers Toastmasters 

We are an open Toastmasters group that meets:

Thursdays, 7:00-8:30 p.m
Northern Lights College
Room 202

Meetings run weekly from September to the end of June (there are no meetings during July & August).  

Guests may attend for free and can fully participate once they sign up for membership!

 

Looking to improve your speaking and leadership skills? Ignite your career? Gain the confidence to speak up?

You’ve come to the right place. Since 1924, Toastmasters International has helped more than 4 million people just like you, from around the world, become more confident speakers and leaders. 

Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development, with more than 345,000 members in over 15,900 clubs in 142 countries. This network of clubs and their learn-by-doing programme are sure to help you improve.

Toastmasters will give you the skills and confidence you need to express yourself effectively in any situation. Whether you are a professional, student, stay-at-home parent or retired, Toastmasters is the most efficient, enjoyable and affordable way of gaining great communication skills. You'll learn how to:

  • Formulate and express your ideas effectively
  • Be more persuasive and confident when giving presentations
  • Improve your one-on-one dealings with others

Don't delay! Become the speaker and leader you want to be. Confident, charismatic leaders weren't born that way. As you progress in Toastmasters, you'll get to practice your skills by organising and conducting meetings and motivating others to help you. Become a better negotiator. Gain trust. Inspire your team.

Visit our next meeting - guests are most welcome. You won't regret it!

Does the mere thought of standing up to say a few words fill you with fear?

If so, you’re not alone! Fear of public speaking is reputed to rank even higher than death! Whether it’s the upcoming wedding speech, an important pitch to a client, or simply making your point in a meeting of colleagues, it’s easy for the fear to take over – so that you don’t perform at your best. There are consequences for how you’re viewed by friends, family and your boss, with follow-on emotional and economic impacts.

So what would you like to do about it?

If you’re employed in a reasonable sized organisation, you might have already attended a presentation skills course. Whilst good, you might have found that the learning wore off quickly and you’re still not that much further forward. If you really want to tackle your fear, and also if you’ve not got access to in-house training, Toastmasters is the perfect answer.

Our wide network of clubs and their learn-by-doing programme are sure to help you become a better speaker and leader because you’ll be building your skills at a pace that you choose. And the regular meetings (typically twice per month) ensure you practice and develop your skills – just as you might build your muscles through regular exercise (well some of you might!).

Here are just some of the benefits of joining Toastmasters:

  • Regular and constructive feedback from other learners as you practice organising your thoughts and presenting them clearly
  • Access to a wealth of educational materials and resources on public speaking, listening skills and effective communication in conferences and meetings.
  • A free subscription to the Toastmaster, a monthly magazine that provides insights on communication, leadership, club activities and other relevant topics.

Members quickly gain the skills that allow them to excel at job interviews, present humorous, informative or special occasion speeches or give powerful business presentations.

Come along to our next meeting to find out more and see it in action. Guests are most welcome and can come as many times as they like.

New Year! New Opportunities to Lead!

Achievers started 2019 with some WOW!  Our first meeting gave us time to catch up on our holdidays! A goal was reached with our 20th member Josiah!

Our next event is the joint club contests for International Speech & Evaluation with Mile 0 Communcators in Dawson Creek at Northern Lights College, Thursday January 31, 2019.  6:30 PM we will start briefings

If you have not signed up as a contestant or for a role Contact Lori Slator or myself.

The January 31 meeting in Fort St. John is CANCELED.  It would be great if everyone can carpool and travel down to Dawson Creek for the contest.  I would love to see a big audience and lots of volunteeers. 

February 9 will be the Area 42 contest at the College of New Caledonia in Prince George.

February will be Toastmaster Month in Fort St. John and across BC.  We are planning an Open House for our 25th Anniversary!  If you have ideas to make this our WOW event of the year contact our VPPR John Alexander or myself.  Lets really make it an event to remember!

Don't forget that our District 96 Annual Conference will be March 29-31 in Vancouver! Registration is open now!  This is a totally unique experience with highly anticipated contests and the best speakers in the district.  If you can work it into a business or leisure trip do take it in!  It will introduce you to a wide variety of leadership opportunities beyond our club level.  #wowfactor

Looking forward to a bright new year of Toastmasters memories!
