What is Toastmasters?

Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development.  Our organization has more than 352,000 memberships.  Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 16,400 clubs in 141 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations.

What is Minami Aoyama Toastmasters Club?

Minami Aoyama Toastmasters Club was established as an English club in Minami Aoyama in 1991.  For a long time we were active as a club name "Sakura Toastmasters Club", but in 2018, we renamed the club name "Minami Aoyama Toastmasters Club" familiar with local Minami Aoyama.
The characteristics of this club have a long history compared with surrounding clubs, and those who are active for more than 20 years now since 1995 are enrolled.  In addition, we actively participate in annual speech contests etc and advanced to the best 8 at the national convention speech.  Many members realize their skill up by themselves, thanks to Toastmasters Club's policy of more faithful meetings and veteran's strong backup.
It is a characteristic of this club that people of various professions (teachers, bank staff, engineers etc.) gather. Especially in recent years, many people participate from IT related companies.  There are many opportunities to listen to more varied speech because the members are from different industries.  It is also a good place for members to stimulate each other and learn together.
