"All the great speakers were bad speakers at first." — Ralph W. Emerson
Prague Speakers Toastmasters Club was established in 2005 as the 1st Toastmasters Club in Prague. Since then our club is representing an elite organization which trains its members in both communication and leadership skills.
I am a risk-taker and a people person. Toastmaster has given me more self-confidence. It has helped me develop persuasion and negotiation skills that have been very useful in my professional career. Among my passions besides traveling and boxing, I enjoy learning languages, I´m fluent in English and Spanish, currently learning Italian for passion and Czech because I like a good challenge.
I like life full of events and people. Through Toastmasters my life has become richer and full of people who consider challenges and development integral parts of their lives. For me Toastmasters is a great opportunity to develop my communication and leadership skills. I use them to great effect for my clients. Thanks to them they are able to create new lives and carriers. A benefit of a benefit. As simple as this.
Peter joined Prague Speakers in 2018 when he urgently needed to prepare for an investor pitch and only had two weeks to do it (thanks to Toastmasters, it went well). Peter is a Dutch-American, Project Manager by trait, who spends much of his time outdoors, climbing, biking, and hiking, and, depending on where the better weather is, travels frequently between Denver, Colorado and Prague.
My name is Bruno Braga and I am an expat from Portugal. I have several areas of interest including: cybersecurity(my job), fitness, social dynamics, psychology, investment and self-improvement in general.
I have joined Toastmasters with the objective of becoming more proficient with improvisation and public speaking. While I spend most of my time cultivating hard skills, I have learned that if you master communication you will not only go a long way but you will also make your life much easier.
How about you stranger? What brings you to our club?
Our club has members of many nationalities, all ages and occupations and we have one thing in common though: we are enthusiastic about becoming better communicators and leaders - THIS IS PRAGUE SPEAKERS TM CLUB!
Public speaking is the heart of every Toastmasters club. And what is the most effective way to improve your skills and overcome any fear standing in the way? As we say, Practise, practise, practise…Because only practice makes the master.
Why are our members happy? Because after attending many meetings and participating in different kind of roles they have received the prestigious certificate: Competent leader.
Speech contests are a Toastmasters tradition. Each year we compete in the Humorous, Evaluation, Table Topics (impromptu speeches) and International speech contests.
Once you feel “the time is right”, just take the stage, deliver your speech and hope for the best!
We 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.
