ABOUT NIGHT VISION TOASTMASTERS
What We're About
As a friendly and decidedly unstuffy club, Night Vision Toastmasters provides the opportunity for our diverse membership to regularly get together to support one another in the development of our speaking and leadership skills.
Each weekly Thursday evening meeting is two hours, with a short break in the middle to chat, make new friends, and ask questions. Both prepared speeches and impromptu speaking opportunities are normally part of the agenda, along with helpful evaluations. We also often have short workshops and host superb guest speakers.
Our current members are a wonderful mix of people from all backgrounds, supporting each other in their growth with intelligence, kindness, and humour.
