Become the best, most highly paid and sought after speaker you can possibly be

speaker

If you are (or want to become) a trainer, seminar leader or keynote presenter – All Pro Toastmasters is dedicated to helping you become the best, most highly paid and sought after speaker you can possibly be!

Here are a few things that make us different from your average community Toastmasters club.

(Note: you do not have to be a Toastmaster already in order to join.)

Practice your professional presentations

This is an excellent opportunity for you to practice your keynote or an interactive exercise from a workshop.

Longer presentations (20 – 45 minutes) are welcomed.

Receive feedback to help you grow

If you are accustomed to “whitewash” evaluations in your current club and are hungry for meaty feedback, you’ll love our evaluations.

Speakers provide their own evaluation sheets and ALL members provide written feedback based upon the criteria the speaker is looking for.

Evaluations are 10 minutes long and conducted round robin style.  As the speaker, you guide the process to gain clarity of the feedback.

All presentations are evaluated from the perspective of: “If I paid for this speech, would it be worth it?”

We tend to focus on “how can this be made better?” and we pull no punches if the presentation is lacking. ALL feedback comes from a place of wanting to help the speaker – which always means telling the truth.

Our philosophy is that it’s better to hear it from us, than a disappoint a paid audience.

Learn about both the business and practice of speaking.

Most of our members are already trainers and experts.

We also bring in occasional guest speakers.

Network and learn from your peers

Surround yourself with people who share similar goals.

Be inspired by strong speakers and insightful evaluations.

We share expertise, contacts and ideas. We support and encourage each other.

and have FUN doing it!

Between the super serious official Toastmasters branding and the high performance bar that we set, don’t get the wrong impression.

We are a close knit group of supportive colleagues. Meetings are warm and friendly (and *way* more casual than you might expect!) We laugh a lot.

If you want to take your speaking experience to whole new level, then join us!

You are welcome to attend our next meeting as a guest. Please RSVP to Stefano Cossalter, DTM
