How Toastmasters in Scotland Works

Self-paced Training Materials

Online or via manuals

Work through the Toastmaster “paths” which appeal to you.  Go at your own pace to learn the theory and deliver speeches and presentations.  There is plenty of opportunity to learn and practice leadership skills.

Practice Public Speaking

At our meetings

At every meeting, you will be given the chance to speak, whether it is to introduce yourself or give a speech; lead the meeting or provide feedback to others.  You will be able to speak in a variety of situations.

Valuable Feedback

Evaluation & Mentorship

Everything we do is evaluated so you are gaining constant feedback on how you are doing and how you can improve.   What’s more, the mentorship programme gives you access to one-to-one feedback and coaching.

If it were not for Toastmasters giving me the confidence I needed, there is no way I would have got my promotion at work. Thanks!


I like that everyone is friendly so you can try out new things and it won't matter if you get it wrong.


Join a Club

Most clubs meet twice a month so that you can constantly practice your skills without going rusty!  There are clubs all over Scotland.


Who is Toastmasters for?

Increase Confidence

Some of our members just need to get over their nerves.  They may need to speak in work situations, want to become professional speakers or just get through a Best Man speech.

Develop Skills

We also have members who want to learn how to put a speech together, get their message across effectively or deliver speeches with skillfully and professionally.

Enjoy and Help

Some Toastmasters in Scotland do not come along for work situations – they just like giving speeches, sharing ideas or want to help others to develop their skills.

Try Before You Buy

Toastmaster Clubs are not-for-profit and are run by members for members.  You can come to up to 3 meetings for free to see if the club will benefit you.  We then ask you to join and contribute to the running costs.  Joining fees are in the region of £100 per year.  Some of this goes to Toastmasters International and the rest to run the club, with most going on room rental.
