Why PG Toastmasters?
Why We Exist
Our mission is to have every guest and Toastmaster walk out our doors a stronger, and more effective communicator than when they entered them.
More than just a stage to practice public speaking, we work with new members to understand their unique communication problems they are looking to solve, and work together to build the vision of the future they would like to achieve.
✔️ Anxiety while public speaking, or speaking in general? We can help.
✔️ Looking to effectively lead or manage a team? We can help.
✔️ Need to communicate highly technical topics in plain English? We can help.
✔️ Thesis defense, or large school speech coming up? We can help.
✔️ Professional development skills holding you back? We can help.
✔️ Looking for self improvement and growth? We can help.
✔️ We are here to help you achieve all of the above, and everything in between.
PGTM Team Operating Principles
1. Nobody gets left behind - we succeed or fail as a team.
When you become a PG Toastmaster, your success is our success. Your failure is our failure. Nobody gets left behind.
2. Anyone who wants to help is welcomed.
Regardless of your background or skill sets, anyone who wishes to make PGTM a better place and to help out is more than welcomed.
3. Anyone who wants to get on the agenda, can get on the agenda.
At PGTM we have a policy that if you wish to speak, you will get the place to speak. We will not turn down a request for a speech as a Toastmaster.
4. We embody the Toastmasters International program as much as possible. We are “by the book”.
Toastmasters International is a worldwide brand with set guidelines for how Toastmasters clubs around the globe are expected to operate, and rules to be followed. We follow the Toastmasters International program as closely as possible.
