Learning in Toastmasters is by self-learning
Members are provided with structured learning materials and practise at their own pace. Feedbacks are provided to members after their presentations for skills enhancement. Experienced members are assigned as mentors to assist new members in their presentations as well as other facilitator roles. From time to time, speaking workshops, speakathons and joint meetings with other clubs are organized to broaden the learning experience of the members.
Regular meetings, various gatherings are organized
In additional to the regular meetings, various gatherings are organized to enrich members’ Toastmasters experience. Social chit-chat, hiking, festival gatherings and anniversary celebrations are well received and enjoyed by our members. Strong bonding among members is one of the distinguished features of KTM.
KTM members also participate in programmes organized by the Toastmasters communities in Hong Kong and overseas. These include regular meetings, speaking workshops, contests, team building activities and annual conventions. Over the years, KTM members are frequent winners in speech contests and some of our members are holding leadership roles in the Toastmasters community in Hong Kong.
In summary, KTM strives to provide an enjoyable and supportive environment for members to learn and grow. As what the club’s motto says, ‘Speak with Success. Succeed with Speaking’. KTM is here to help YOU to achieve success in your personal and professional goals.
