Goals and Objectives

As the 2017-18 President of Markham Toastmasters Club 4782, I would like to welcome you to our club.

In today’s competitive and fast paced environment, it’s vital that we are able to communicate engagingly and persuasively. To live life to the fullest and succeed in business, community and family, we need to be able to lead and speak with confidence. When you get involved in our Club, you will open yourself up for numerous opportunities to learn about speaking and leadership and develop skills in an encouraging and safe environment. 

Markham Toastmasters Club is fortunate enough to have a diverse membership base. Our members hail from many different cultures and backgrounds. We have brand new to very experienced speakers, young to older members, and professionals from a wide range of industries. This variety adds just the right amount of spice and diversity to our weekly meetings.

This season, we have a host of exciting activities lined up for you to enjoy this year, starting with our Leadership Speaker Series. Some of our featured expert speakers include James Ng, Kwesi Millington, Cindy Stradling and Shishir Lakhani, who will be speaking on a variety of Communication and Leadership topics.

We will also have a variety of fun events planned for our members, including two speech contests, learning workshops, after-meeting socials, sport outings and community outreach events to round out our club calendar.

So if you’re ready to begin your Toastmaster adventure, please feel free to attend one of our meetings. We meet every Tuesday evening (September to June) from 6:55-8:55pm at Markham Village Library, 6031 Hwy 7 East, Markham. We look forward to meeting you there!

Best regards to you.  Live Life...and Learn!

Laura Connor,
