WHAT IS TOASTMASTERS?
The First Toastmaster club not only in Astana but in Kazakhstan and Central Asia devoted to improve public speaking and leadership skills.
Most Toastmasters meetings are comprised of approximately 20 people who meet weekly for an hour or two. Participants practice and learn skills by filling a meeting role, ranging from giving a prepared speech or an impromptu one to serving as timer, evaluator or grammarian. There is no instructor; instead, each speech and meeting is critiqued by a member in a positive manner, focusing on what was done right and what could be improved. Toastmasters is a non-profit organization offering its members a proven and enjoyable way of practicing communication and leadership skills.
Mission: provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.
Vision: become the best club in Kazakhstan which provides the best opportunities to improve public speaking, communication and leadership skills in English by creative supportive and friendly environment for members who will grow professionally and personally by actively participating in meetings and events.
Toastmasters values: Integrity, Respect, Service and Excellence.
