Where Leaders Are Made

The world needs leaders. Leaders head families, coach teams, run businesses and mentor others. These leaders must not only accomplish; they must communicate.

Since 1924, Toastmasters International has become a world leader in Communication and Leadership Development. Over 357,000 members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 16,600 clubs in 143 countries, which makes up our global network.

By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program.

Toastmasters members learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback — and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.

In Singapore, Toastmasters International is represented by District 80. District 80 counts more than 200 active clubs and more than 5’000 club members. Rest assured there is a club close enough to your home, your office or your daily commute path!
