Improve your leadership and public speaking skills through Toastmasters

Check out Toastmasters at St. Paul's Hospital

Are you looking to improve your leadership and public speaking skills? Toastmasters International is your answer!

The St. Paul’s Toastmasters Club invites members of the Providence Health Care community to join in on the club’s regular bi-weekly lunchtime meetings to learn more about Toastmasters.

“Our club provides a supportive and positive environment where members have the opportunity to develop their communications and leadership skills while working towards internationally recognized certifications that make for a more competitive cover letter,” says Jessica Maiorino, Club VP Public Relations.  

After hearing planned speeches from current members, guests will enjoy a regular Toastmasters meeting that includes Table Topics (impromptu, theme-driven speeches) and constructive peer evaluations.

The St. Paul’s Toastmasters Club meets every second Thursday from 12 - 1pm at the Gourlay Conference Centre (Burrard building, 1st floor, Room 166). No RSVP is required and new guests are always warmly welcomed. 

The club chartered in 2016 and is open to any and all interested parties. Opportunities for membership fee subsidy may be available through your organization as part of professional development funding.

For more information about this club, visit www.stpauls.toastmastersclubs.org.
