Message from Club President
Welcome to the Sun Life Speakers Corner Toastmasters Club at downtown Toronto. Our club provides a motivating forum for any individual to practice and improve public speaking skills.
Yes, you can be a good and effective public speaker. Sun Life Speakers Corner provides the perfect environment where new members are motivated, encouraged continuously guided to "stand and speak".
The mission of every 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."
We all have intelligent and smart ideas and sometimes all that we need is presentation skills to clearly and confidently communicate our ideas and thoughts. Public speaking is a very powerful tool to motivate, influence, persuade, inform and entertain. A good speaker will be organized and have the confidence to present the substance of the speech to an audience.
Sun Life Speakers Corner provides the opportunity in a very friendly environment where one practices different aspects of speaking such as prepared speech, short impromptu speeches, evaluating a speaker and being a meeting coordinator (called Toastmaster). All speakers in the club find noticeable improvement in the confidence and quality of speaking in front of small or large group or audience.
Sun Life Speakers Corner has a mentorship program where seasoned speakers guide and motivate new members to develop their presentation skills.
Our club has achieved Presidentís Distinguished Club status for three years in a row which is the highest award given to any Toastmasters club.
Our meetings are held every Tuesday from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM at 150 King Street West (northeast corner of King and University). The Upcoming Meetings section (click on "Home" in the top right of this screen for meeting location details) provides information on our next meeting.
You are welcome to attend the meetings as a guest. As a guest, you can participate in the impromptu section of the meeting where one can practice to speak on a topic with little or no preparation.
Any of the members of the Executive Committee listed at the end of this message would be pleased to provide you more information on our club.
Thank you and we hope to see you soon!
