We are Speaking Elephants – Toastmasters Club from Warsaw

Our club’s mission is people. Our organization’s founder, Dr. Ralph Smedley, once said, ‘Ours is the only organization I know that is dedicated to the individual’.

We strongly believe in those words and work together to bring out the best in each of us. Speaking Elephants is a place that provides its members with the opportunity to grow and learn.

We simply get more speaking done before 8:30 than most people do all day. This is what our Elephants expect, this is why they stay and bring friends. The numbers follow the people, as it should be. Our club provides an encouraging environment so that those who are not accustom to speaking can feel at ease. With portions of the meeting like table topics, the meetings are often fun and filled with excitement. Joining us you can grow both professionally and personally.

You are around individuals who want to improve their communication skills and more importantly want you to improve your communication skills as well. One of the things people notice about our club is how different not only the speeches are, but how different and varied the background and ages of the participants is.

Enjoy some of our Club members’ speeches from the comfort of your own home! What makes our club one of the premier public speaking groups in Poland is the quality and diversity of the topics of the speeches that you will hear. Another aspect of the Speaking Elephants Video Resources is the fact that our speeches are usually followed by evaluations. By actively listening, providing reinforcement for the speakers’ strengths and gently offering useful advice, we, as a Toastmasters Club, motivate members to work hard and improve. By giving feedback, we are contributing to our fellow Club members’ improvement. Preparing and presenting evaluations is also an opportunity to practice listening, critical thinking, feedback and motivation skills.
