Getting Started

Guests are always welcome at Oak Bay Toastmasters.

Our club has a diverse, dynamic membership. Our meetings are conducted in a friendly, comfortable, fun atmosphere that allows everyone to enjoy the evening while developing individual speaking and leadership skills.

Each evening, our agenda normally has three prepared speeches as well as a session of impromptu speeches which ensures that all members are included in every meeting. Visitors are always welcome and are not expected to speak, but are encouraged to participate in either the Table Topics (Impromptu) session or offer their comments as a guest towards the end of the meeting.

As a guest, you will:

  • Be greeted at the door and seated next to an experienced speaker.
  • Receive a guest package that gives you information about Oak Bay Toastmasters to take home with you.
  • Receive a copy of the meeting agenda. 
  • Be introduced to our group by a greeter.

As a first time member, you will:

  • Receive your Toastmasters manual to get you started.
  • Be given an Oak Bay Toastmasters name badge.
  • Receive from Toastmasters International, a membership kit that contains your own starter’s manual, full of tips and suggestions as well as the outline for 10 speeches.
  • Receive a "leadership training manual" and a subscription to the Toastmaster magazine that has current articles on how to improve your public speaking abilities.
  • Be asked if you would like a mentor to support you for as long as you need.
