About Business Breakfast Toastmasters
At the Business Breakfast Toastmasters Club (BBC), we empowers members to become more effective communicators and leaders. We meet 7.00am-8.10am on Tuesdays.
Toastmasters is not a formal course in public speaking. There are no instructors or classrooms. Your speeches are not graded, and there are no tests.
You'll learn by studying the resources, giving speeches on a variety of topics and helping others with constructive feedback.
What type of people join BBC?
You don't have to own a business to be a member of BBC. Our members come from many different backgrounds and their ages range from 20s through to 60s. Regardless of their age, they all have the same goal: to improve their communication and leadership skills.
Why do you meet at 7.00am?
Most people lead busy lives. Meeting first thing is a great start to the morning and keeps our members' days and evenings free for whatever else they have on their plate.
Can I try it out before signing up?
Of course! We'd love to have you as a guest. You're welcome to visit a few times before you sign up to see if BBC is the club for you.
How much does it cost?
Where do you meet?
We meet at St Peter's Church, 211 Willis Street, across the courtyard behind the church in the ground floor meeting room. You may find it easier to access this location from the Ghuznee Street entrance.
What are BBC's meetings like?
At a BBC meeting there will be a number of members with different roles. The Toastmaster (Chairperson) will set the theme for the meeting and facilitate the session. The first half of the meeting will consist of the Grammarian's challenge (a word of the day for people to try and use), Table Topics (impromptu speaking) and the prepared speeches. After a network break, the second half of the meeting will focus on evaluations.
