We’re a friendly bunch at Christchurch Athenians, and guests are always very welcome. Come along to a few meetings to see how it all works. Then if you want to continue on – join us as a member.
Is Toastmasters right for you?
Do you want to become a confident public speaker and strong leader? Toastmasters is a supportive learn-by-doing environment where you can achieve your goals at your own pace.
What happens at a typical Athenians meeting?
In the first half of the meeting you’ll hear prepared speeches from members, then we break around 8pm for tea and biscuits. The second half of the meeting kicks off with Table Topics – these are 1-2 minute impromptu speeches, so if you’re up for it you’re welcome to have a go! Last but not least are the evaluations. Every part of Toastmasters is evaluated with constructive feedback – this is how we learn!
We look forward to meeting you.
Please note we meet upstair in one of the meeting rooms (if you get lost ask any of the friendly staff) and if you are late you are naughty and will get a table topic for sure!
