Our upcoming meetings in 2019 for East Coast Toastmasters are on February 5th and 19th, March 5th and 19th, April 2nd , 16th and 30th, May 14th and 28th, June 11th and 25th. We meet on alternate Tuesdays in the Carlton Hotel, Dublin Airport (Santry) at 8pm. We would like to welcome anyone interested in seeing what Toastmasters is about to come along. Meetings start at 8pm and end at 10pm, with a break in the middle for tea/ coffee and a friendly chat.
The aim of Toastmasters is to practice and train in the art of public speaking or basically just speaking in front of people. We promote sociability and good fellowship among our members and we practice speaking and listening in every meeting.
Our principal aim is to help our members become comfortable in front of an audience. By participating in the meeting, we practise and learn the basic skills of both impromtu speaking and prepared speaking.
The Club meetings have the usual format of Speeches and Evaluations and we welcome any guests to come along and see how the Toastmaster programme can assist in the learning of a new skill. It's like course in communication skills and can help you in your life if you ever need to do an interview, make a speech or even propose a toast 😉
If you want to improve your confidence when speaking in front of an audience… and do so with the support of a group of like-minded people, of all ages, then this is the place for you. Guests are always welcome, and there is plenty of FREE parking at the hotel. The meetings are friendly, fun and supportive and we usually have around 20 people in the room. Refreshments are provided and it's always a great night of entertainment. As one member often says, "You never leave without learning something".
Why not just show up for a meeting? If you live or work near the Airport, Santry, Coolock, Artane, Ballymun, or even further afield like Lusk, Ballyboughal or Rush.....please pay us a visit. You will be very welcome and there is every danger you might enjoy yourself.
If you like the sound of all that and are still thinking of coming along to any of our meetings here is a poem written by one of our members about their experience when they first started for you to enjoy.
