About Toastmasters


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, a stay-at-home parent, a college student, or a retiree, you will improve yourself, by building skills to better express yourself in a variety of situations.

You’ll also open up a world of new possibilities, including 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.

Visiting the Club

Founded in 2002, Nuremberg Toastmasters was the first Franconian Toastmasters club and consequently has many experienced members. Our primary goal is to help all members to become better speakers and thereby successful leaders in their professional and daily lives.

Our members are both native and non-native English speakers, people who help to establish a uniquely professional and supportive learning and training atmosphere at each meeting.

You’re warmly invited to visit our meetings as a guest. This is the best way to find out if Nuremberg Toastmasters is what you’re looking for.

As a guest you won’t have to participate actively in the meeting if you don’t want to. Just sit back and enjoy the whole evening. However, at the beginning we will ask you to introduce yourself and at the end we would like to hear your opinion of the meeting.

We look forward to seeing you.
