"I had been speaking at conferences for several years, but it was not until I joined Toastmasters that I found out how bad I was. The detailed and structured feedback have helped me address my weak points and to give audiences a clearer message. The laid back environment at Toastmasters is the perfect setting to improve your skills, I would recommend it to anyone."

"Toastmasters not only builds confidence, but inspires it. As a marketer and business owner, I am incredibly aware of the value of good articulation and commanding a room. But Strictly Speaking Harrogate Toastmasters provides much more than that. With the opportunity to hone skills such as presentation mastery or the art of persuasive speech, I have not only built confidence but increased my ambition to speak at larger and more challenging events to test my new abilities.


Speaking aside, Strictly Speaking Harrogate is a warm, friendly and incredibly supportive environment, where you learn and develop just as much from listening, as you do from taking part. I have developed new friendships and built a network amongst my local community and I couldn’t recommend joining enough!"



"Toastmasters, and the Strictly Speaking Harrogate club in particular, is an incredible platform for anyone wanting to develop their presentation skills and general confidence with speaking. Whether you are an experienced speaker or a novice, you will improve. I've been speaking for many years and I've made more progress since I joined last year than I have in the past 25!"
