Where can you meet new friends, learn interesting and unusual information, develop your unrealised public speaking and leadership skills, and, most of all, enjoy yourself! The Speakeasy Toastmaster Club offers all this and more, and our 05-06 season commences in
In existence for over a decade, Speakeasy Toastmasters has achieved great success, with the club achieving Presidents’ Distinguished Club Status, the highest award for Toastmaster Club performance. Club members have also held high office in the Toastmaster Organisation and have performed strongly in Toastmaster competitions. This success is due to the friendly and supportive atmosphere which is the hallmark of Speakeasy Toastmasters.

Club members deliver speeches based on Toastmaster manuals with Guidance and support provided by the other club members. New members use the basic manual, which covers the basics of public speaking, such as speech organisation, body gestures and effective use of the voice. After the basic manual, members progress to specialised manuals which cover, to give two examples, humorous speeches and speeches for special occasions.

Members of the public are more than welcome to attend our meetings. For € 3 attendance fee (not even the price of a pint!), you are guaranteed an entertaining and stimulating evening. Importantly, you will not be asked to speak. Our first meeting will be held on September 1st at the Hibernian Hotel, Mallow for 8:00 pm. More information about the club is available from Ray at 086-3675706 , from the Club Website, and from the Club Webblog,
