Welcome - Toastmasters Pembroke


The mission of a Toastmasters club is to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every individual member has the opportunity to develop oral communication and leadership skills, which in turn foster self-confidence and personal growth.


Toastmasters International is the leading movement devoted to making effective oral communication aworldwide reality.

Through its member clubs, Toastmasters International helps men and women learn the arts of speaking, listening, and thinking – vital skills that promote self-actualization, enhance leadership potential, foster human understanding, and contribute to the betterment of mankind.

It is basic to this mission that Toastmasters International continually expand its worldwide network of member clubs, thereby offering ever-greater numbers of people the opportunity to benefit from its program.


Toastmasters International empowers people to achieve their full potential and realize their dreams. Through our member clubs, people throughout the world can improve their communication and leadership skills, and find the courage to change.

What does it all REALLY mean ?

All of the above are the 'official' Toastmasters credos; They're all accurate, but what does being a Toasmaster really mean to you and I, the every day person ?

Yes, the every day person: Toastmasters is not "just" for corporate leaders, managers or public speakers; Toastmasters is for:

  • The person looking to be able to speak more confidently in a job interview, increasing your chances of hearing "So when can you start ?"
  • The person who hosts scrap booking, candle or spice parties at home, looking to be a more engaging host or hostess.
  • The hockey coach who wants to get their kids to listen more and to better get your ideas across
  • The school teacher who wants to have their students enjoy the class time, instead of dreading 'another boring lecture'
  • The office 'fun person', looking to have their stories spiced up and their co-workers enjoy their tales more
  • The sales person looking to be able to speak naturally to prospective clients, instead of memorizing a script, increasing their sales and commissions.

In essence, Toastmasters is what you make of it; At our Pembroke club, we have members who speak professionally, members who coach and train others, military personel who deal with groups of fellow service people, a theatre manager who regularly deals with very large groups of people and more.
The most commonly stated benefit of the Pembroke Toastmasters club is "It's a place for intelligent conversation, a little public speaking and a lot of laughs".
