President’s Welcome

Hello, I’m Philip the club’s president.

We guarantee a warm and welcome friendly to all of our members and guests that visit us at Oxlease House in Hatfield for our Toastmasters meetings. We are a fun, friendly and supportive
club that helps its members develop their confidence, communication and leadership skills through experience.

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Monday of every month at 7:30pm for a 7:45 start. We are an established public speaking club that has been established for over 20 years.   We are a diverse club, with members of all ages and a variety of backgrounds. We meet due to our desire to improve our public and business speaking skills, some because they are nervous speakers and others who wish to improve on the basic skills they already have. Whatever your reason we are sure to be able to help you. We have approximately 25 members some are with us to help them in their working life, others because they have been called upon to give a speech and others, well because they fancy a fun challenge.

In addition to helping you improve your public speaking, Hertfordshire Speakers can, through the delivery of the self-paced Toastmasters programme, help you improve your leadership skills. We are one of many hundreds of clubs around the country that delivers this successful and fun programme. There are currently over 7,500 members in the UK.

I personally guarantee you that if you take the initial step of arriving at our club as a guest and take time to follow the programme in the safe, non-pressured and highly supportive environment that we offer, you will realise that you can achieve your public speaking and leadership goals.

We are a not-for-profit organisation and so our annual membership costs are low. Full membership of the club costs £132 per year. You can attend free of charge as a guest too. So why wait? Either drop in to one of our meetings or you can Contact Us if you have any questions.

Guests are very welcome at our meetings, and there is no obligation to join us or to speak at the meeting if you don’t want to. Every day our members are gaining more confidence, communicating more effectively and achieving their goals. Why not join them?

Philip Carey President, July 2019– June 2020
