Who We Are
Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Founded in October 22, 1924 by Dr. Ralph C. Smedley, Toastmasters International, a non-profit educational organization, has helped people of all backgrounds become more confident in speaking in front of an audience.
Our organization has more than 352,000 memberships. Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 16,400 clubs in 141 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations.
The success of Toastmasters International is due in large part to the continued development of its educational programs and to the ways the organization meets the needs of its members through their clubs.
Bangkok Toastmasters Club is the first Club launched in South East Asia, and also the first Toastmasters Club in Thailand. The Club was officially chartered in December 1, 1955 by Mr. A.W. Altken.
The purpose of our Club is to help members achieve their personal growth and self-actualization through the Toastmasters educational program and activities in the most constructive and fun-filled environment.
How does Bangkok Toastmasters Club work?
Our meetings are ” learning-by-doing” workshop style in which members can hone their skills in a safe environment. As members steadily enhance their communication and leadership skills, they begin to feel the difference; their confidence and self-esteem improve. The difference is the growth in who they are and how they think, feel and believe.
Our club currently has about 20 – 30 members who meet weekly to learn and practice the art of public speaking and leadership techniques. The average club meeting lasts approximately two hours.
As a guest, you are welcome to join our regular club meetings to find out whether Toastmasters International program can help you achieve your goals.
As a member, you will have a very thrilling opportunity for personal growth with the Pathways Program. It is tailored to an individual’s needs and goals and will enable our members to develop 300 different skills that can be applied to the world outside Toastmasters. The speech evaluations are more rigorous relative to the ones offered through our legacy educational program. The new evaluations allow speakers to benefit from more specific and useful feedback.
