Develop your public speaking and leadership skills
For The Chamber, it was a simple idea – help develop the speaking and leadership skills of a group of positive-minded people, and they could become ambassadors for Winnipeg and The Chamber.
That was the beginning of the We Believe Toastmasters Club, now one of the fast-growing Toastmasters clubs in the city.
The club meets every second Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. in the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce’s Boardroom on the 2nd floor of 259 Portage Avenue. Membership is $150 for Chamber members and $175 for non-members.
The program includes prepared speeches (5-7 minutes in length) and a “Table Topics” session which is a two-minute unprepared speech where individuals are asked to speak spontaneously on various issues and topics. All presenters are offered written feedback to enhance their skills. We also provide leadership sessions and training along with opportunities to compete in speech contests.
