Our Story

All that we have is just stories; Some stories inspire us, some educate us, embarrass us and others make us laugh or cry. However, one should remember that it’s only these stories that are what is left of us when we die.

  • 1924

    Our Humble Beginnings

    It all started in 1924 at the YMCA in Santa Ana, California when Ralph C. Smedley invited a few men to have the first meeting in what would evolve to be Toastmasters International. A visionary who once said "Whatever your grade or position, if you know how and when to speak, and when to remain silent, your chances of real success are proportionately increased."

  • June 2008

"You get in life what you have the courage to ask for" A saying that has stayed with me for a long time. We are often de-motivated by thoughts of what others might think of us, what they might say and how we might embarass ourselves that we do not even try to achieve somethings we desire deeply. But what we don't realize is that maybe everyone is going through the same thing. In this extremely competitive cut-throat world, maybe everyone is a little afraid of failure, of taking the wrong path. So when we take a step towards our dreams, people might not like it, they might make fun of it, they might try to pull us down but they can only do that if we let them. Toastmasters is THE most supportive community, a safe place, full of energetic enthusiastic and positive individuals from diverse backgrounds who are willing to break the barriers and help each other in their journey of personal growth. Toastmasters is an experience in itself which cannot be described in just a few words.

What does a toastmasters meeting entail?

We at Gurgaon toastmasters have a themed meetings. Each week a new theme is introduced about which a toastmaster talks in brief. Each meeting is divided into 3 sections - Prepared speeches, Table Topics and evaluations. It is a two hour meeting, wherein each member takes up a different role. We encourage guests to participate in the table topics section of the meeting.

Meeting Etiquettes

  • We start the meetings sharp at the given time, so don't be late.
  • If you are late, enter only during applause.
  • Keep your cellphones on silent.
  • Be quiet and respectful.
  • Keep the enthusiasm up by clapping everytime someone is introduced on the stage!
