Welcome

COVID 19 Update:

East Coast Toastmasters are currently online during the Corona Virus Pandemic. You can join us on Zoom by emailing us at eastcoasttms@gmail.com or using the contact tab on this site. See also our Facebook and Meetup pages for updates during this time. You can find us at @EastCoastToastmasters on www.facebook.com  @Public Speaking North Dublin on Meetup.com

Who are we?

We are a public speaking group based in North Dublin and our aim is to help each other improve our confidence when speaking. By participating in the meeting, we all practise and learn the basic skills of both impromtu (off the cuff) speaking and prepared speaking. This helps us with everything from giving presentations, to interview skills all the way down to general small talk. There is no substitute for regular practice of any skill, and speaking in public is a skill that can be improved.

What do we do?

At East Coast we are dedicated to helping our members become comfortable in front of an audience. The Club meetings have  the usual format of prepared Speeches and Evaluations followed by a topics session. We welcome you to come along and see how the Toastmaster programme can assist you. Becoming a member can improve your communication skills to allow you to be comfortable in almost any social situation.

Where is it?

Currently we are meeting on Zoom, every second Tuesday and dates are listed above. You can usually find the zoom link on our facebook page or Meetup group. Alternatively, send your email to us at eastcoasttms@gmail.com and we will add you to the mailing list.

When we return to "in-person' meetings, we meet in the Carlton Airport Hotel, Old airport road, Cloughran, Santry/Swords. 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 between 10 and 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?  You will be very welcome!
