The Five W’s Of Toastmasters

What Is Toastmasters?

Toastmasters is a nonprofit organization that educates members on presentation and public speaking skills. The head office is located in Englewood Colo. Toastmasters was developed in 1928 by Ralph C. Smedley. Ralph was working for the YMCA (Young Men’s Christian Association) in Bloomington, Illinois, United States. In his role within the YMCA as a director of education, he noticed that people lacked presentation skills. This is when he decided to create a club to help people develop their social skills, and enter Toastmasters. Back then “toastmasters” referred to a person who gave toasts at banquets and other events. This membership was only for men until the first female member joined in 1973. She was then selected to become Toastmasters International’s first female president. Today there are over 300,000 members throughout 149 countries. The skills they teach include; improving public speaking skills, learning and building leadership skills, networking, practice with writing speeches, presenting in a group setting, and building self-confidence.
