If you're keen to improve your public speaking skills, come be part of Nuremberg Toastmasters.

The essentials of the club
All about who we are and what we do.

Nuremberg Toastmasters was founded in the year 2002. It was the first Franconian Toastmasters club and has many experienced members. Our main goal is to help all members to become better speakers and thereby successful as leaders in their professional and daily lives.

Members are both native and non-native English speakers which helps to establish a uniquely professional and supportive learning and training atmosphere at each meeting. Toastmasters is a place where you can develop and grow – both personally and professionally. You join a community of learners, and in Toastmasters meetings we learn by doing.

Whether you’re an executive or a stay-at-home parent, a college student or a retiree, you will improve yourself; building skills to express yourself in a variety of situations.

You’ll open up a world of new possibilities: giving better work presentations; leading meetings – and participating in them more confidently; speaking more smoothly off the cuff; even handling one-on-one interactions with family, friends and colleagues more positively.
