What happens at
a meeting?

There is a general standard format to every meeting at Cape Town Toastmasters Club. Educationals, Speeches, Evaluations & 'Table Topics' are the four elements.

This is the learning part of the evening where our more experienced members teach the members about skills
Prepared Speeches
This forms the main part of the evening, members will present their prepared speeches to the club.
Speech Evaluations
Each speaker has an assigned evaluator. He or she will critique the speech based on the requirements laid out on their speech manual.
Impromptu Speeches
AKA Table Topics, this a fun part of the evening and an excellent time for those not involved previously in the evening to get involved.

Be Able to Perform & Lead When Life Happens


In life, there are happy moments and sad moments. Moments that sometimes need to be shared publicly. When friends and family look to you, have the ability and confidence to take the reigns and guide them through those moments of joy or grief.
