Something for Everyone at Toastmasters
Toastmasters has proven to be one of the best ways to improve communication skills. But there are many other benefits to joining Oak Bay Toastmasters. Lose your fear of speaking in public, build your confidence, and most importantly, learn skills that will help you be more successful at whatever you choose to do.

Visitors are welcome to come and be educated and entertained!

At Oak Bay Toastmasters you will learn to:

  • speak comfortably in public
  • be a better listener
  • easily lead teams and conduct meetings
  • comfortably give and receive constructive evaluations
  • build your confidence

You may already have some or all of these skills, but in Toastmasters you will learn to polish what you already have and learn new ways to better express yourself.

A Poem From a Member:

My task for tonight is to make you all smile.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy for awhile.

A smile's an expression that makes you feel great.
It's fun, it's contagious, it's simply first rate.

It begins with your mouth and spreads ear to ear.
It lights up your face and draws people near.

It is brought on by things that make you feel happy.
Like sunsets and hugs, and cards that are sappy.

As babies and children we smile constantly.
We giggle and grin and are so full of glee.

But as we grow older our smile tends to fade.
There's commitments and stresses, careers to be made.

We become very busy with no time to play.
And forget that a smile belongs in each day.

So I'm here to remind you that you have things in your life,
That you love and you cherish with all of your might.

So smile really big for all that you've got.
And never forget that a smile means a lot.

- Susan W

It is not the mountain that we conquer, but ourselves.
