Munich Toastmasters is open to anyone who wants to join. No guest registrations are necessary prior to a meeting and guests may attend as many times as they wish.

Please do not forget to bring a pen to give the speakers your personal feedback on our feedback forms.
What does a Munich Toastmasters meeting look like?
Munich Toastmasters meetings consist of a combination of impromptu speeches, prepared speeches, and evaluations.
Impromptu speeches: These speeches fall under the Table Topics section of the evening. A Table Topics Master prepares questions on a chosen topic and invites guests or members to deliver a two-minute speech on the posed question. This helps participants improve their impromptu speaking skills and develop their improvisation and critical thinking skills.
Prepared speeches: This part of the evening consists of four speeches prepared by club members on an individually selected topic. Delivered speeches follow the Pathways or Competent Communicator Manual (until 2020) guidelines. This section allows members to practice and improve on individual public speaking skills.
Evaluations: Subjective evaluations are delivered for prepared speeches. Each speaker is assigned an evaluator, who provides feedback on the speaker’s delivery of his or her prepared speech. This enables members to develop their speaking and leadership skills, as well as to gain in-depth feedback from club members.
