The NUSS Toastmasters Club was chartered on 17 December 2004. Our members participate actively in delivering their speeches and leadership roles in our club.
The NUSS Toastmasters Club is part of Toastmasters International, which is recognised worldwide. There are ample opportunities to interact and exchange ideas with fellow toastmasters from more than 200 Toastmasters Clubs in Singapore, and also around the world through regular chapter meetings, joint-meetings with other clubs, and annual toastmasters’ events and conventions.
The mission of Toastmasters is to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every individual member has the opportunity to develop communication and leadership skills. This in turn fosters self-confidence and personal growth.
NUSS Toastmasters - A President Distinguished Club!
With the dedication, passion and commitment of our members, the NUSS Toastmasters Club has been awarded 'President Distinguished Club’ status by Toastmasters International for the terms 2008/2009, 2010/2011, 2015/2016, and 2016/2017. The club members will continue in their efforts to ensure that the present 2017/18 term will likewise maintain the status.
The active participation of members at our monthly chapter meetings has made many into effective speakers and communicators, a skill that is all the more important in today’s interconnected world. Many members have acknowledged that the various speaking projects and opportunities that the club provides have helped them improve and hone their speaking skills, and this has advanced them professionally in their various fields as well as with their respective community outreach.
The NUSS Toastmasters Experience
To encourage our members to set and achieve higher goals, Toastmasters International awards Educational titles to members who have accomplished their projects in both the Communication and Leadership tracks. Members hone their speaking skills by delivering prepared speeches, and by engaging in impromptu speeches. Thereafter they will receive constructive feedback from experienced fellow toastmasters on various areas for improvement. In turn, toastmasters themselves learn the essential skills of listening, evaluating and delivering motivating feedback and comments to fellow toastmasters.
Members are also encouraged to take on leadership roles at each meeting as well as at the club level. Consequently, leadership development opportunities also extend to the Area, Division and District (or National) levels. The toastmasters programme also includes the annual speech contests when toastmasters enhanced their speaking skills by pitting against other toastmasters at the club, area, division and district levels, and ultimately on the global stage at the annual international event. The achievements by toastmasters are recognised by many employers.
