A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere. There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success and personal development.
During the meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics through manuals, conduct meetings and develop skills related to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedure.
The Greenville Toastmasters “The Can Do Club” was chartered on July 19, 1971, and has been active in the community through all these 47 years.
