What is Toastmasters?

‘Ours is the only organization
I know
that is dedicated to
the individual’
Dr. Ralph Smedley, the Founder of Toastmasters International

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. Our club provides an encouraging environment so that those who are not accustomed to speaking can feel at ease. At Speaking Elephants you are among individuals who want to improve their communication skills and, more importantly, want to help you improve your communication skills as well. The structure of each meeting is as follows:

  • a few speeches prepared by club members
  • evaluations
  • impromptu speeches called Table Topics
  • evaluations of selected aspects of public speaking (e.g. body language, time control etc.)

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. 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 an opportunity to practice:

  • listening
  • critical thinking
  • delivering feedback
  • motivating.
    The club meetings are also fun and excitement!
