“But just what do we mean by ‘leadership?’ It would appear to be the capacity to look ahead, think ahead, plan ahead, and then influence other people to go ahead on the plan.”- Ralph C. Smedley, founder of Toastmasters International.

What are you doing on Thursdays at lunch?

Are you a current, past, or retired municipal or regional government employee from
• Town of Newmarket

Interested in developing your communication and leadership skills? Then TNT is the place to be!

Whether you are a current employee for a local municipality/York Region or a front line emergency services worker, worked as a camp counselor for one of Newmarket’s summer camps as a student in the past, or are a retired staffer for YRP – The Newmarket Toastmasters are here for you!

The Newmarket Toastmasters (TNT) will help improve your communication skills and open doors in your personal and professional life. Instead of labouring in a classroom or spending money on costly seminars, you’ll learn and develop communication and leadership skills through a peer-led, self-paced program within a friendly, supportive environment with people who are there for the same reasons you are – to become better communicators and leaders.

TNT meets for one hour every Thursday at 12:00 Noon at the Newmarket Municipal Offices (395 Mulock Dr) Usually in the Cane Meeting Room. Attendance is at the individual’s discretion as, due to work and other lunch-time commitments, it is not always possible to attend every meeting.

Bring a lunch and be a guest at our next meeting, we would love to see you!

New Year’s Resolutions

It’s the time of year to set goals!

Whether for our own personal fulfillment or a work/professional goal, The Newmarket Toastmasters offers a Communication course that rivals courses at any College. The annual fee for The Newmarket Toastmasters is only $125.00 US the first year, and $100.00 US each year thereafter. Compare that to the cost of a College course! Less expensive does not mean less knowledge!

Toastmasters can help you accomplish a goal for your Personal development Process for 2016.

For example- If one of your objectives is to Learn Continuously and / or Communicates Effectively – Participating in the weekly Toastmasters meeting, you would have the opportunity to improve on skills like, organization of meetings, written and oral communication and impromptu speaking. Completing your Toastmasters manual shows your progress through the program.

All this, while having fun in a supportive environment.

“Toastmasters at Work” is a unique and proven program for developing your communication and leadership skills. It provides a positive and supportive atmosphere where you have the opportunity to find your voice while getting constructive feedback from other members as you practice organizing your thoughts and presenting them clearly.

As a member of The Newmarket Toastmasters I am very pleased that “Toastmasters at Work” was included in the 2016 Learning and Development Calendar.

The Newmarket Toastmasters would like to invite you to attend a meeting. Meetings are held every Thursday at 12:00 pm, @ 395 Mulock Dr. – Cane A/B rooms

Like, Eliminate Ums and Ahs, Right?

By Lisa B. Marshall, Author of Smart Talk and host of The Public Speaker podcast on Quick and Dirty Tips
August 22, 2014

“Recently I attended a training course in New York City and at the start of the course each of us introduced ourselves. The senior executive sitting next to me said, and I quote, “I, like, work for a big bank, like, Citibank. I work, um, in technology, and head-up a group of like, 500 people, right. I do, like, technology risk assessment, right, and create, um, processes, to, like, reduce risk, right.”

I was shocked.”
