Lyon Toastmasters Unlimited

A Bilingual Public Speaking Club made for you!

Do you know the second fear of human after the death, is public speaking? Interesting…

Until 25 years old, I was very shy, with a low self-esteem. I couldn’t speak in public, and raise my hand in class. I’ve been in the Lyon Toastmasters Unlimited club since January 2019, and it’s been an eye-opening experience. The club’s energy, the benevolence, and to improve one’s skills in public speaking is the best combination to become more confident!

That’s why, I hope to see you for the next meeting. You can see on the website, the meetings calendar. And don’t forget: If I do it, you can do it!

Sais-tu que la deuxième peur de l’être humain après la mort, est la prise de parole publique? Intéressant…

Jusqu’à mes 25 ans, j’étais très timide, avec peu de confiance en moi. Je n’arrivais pas à prendre la parole en public, ni lever la main en cours. Je me suis inscrit à LYON TOASTMASTERS UNLIMITED depuis janvier 2019, et cela a été une révélation pour moi. L’énergie du club, la bienveillance, et la volonté d’améliorer ses compétences dans la prise de parole en public est la meilleure combinaison pour devenir plus confiant!

J’espère pouvoir te voir aux différents meetings, et surtout n’oublie pas: Si je le fais, tu peux le faire aussi !

OUR CONCEPT

One of the most important concepts in our lives is speaking (verbally and non-verbally).

Being able to communicate  a message to another person or a group effectively is essential.

Unfortunately, this is a skill we don’t always have the chance to improve.
Fortunately, it can be learned, mastered and can be practiced regularly until it becomes part of you.

  • Would you like to have your ideas heard (at work or in your personal life) ?
  • Do you need preparation for interviews (in French or English) ?
  • Are you planning to become a coach or a public speaker ?
  •  Would you like to inspire people ?
  • Do you have a speech to give and want to make sure the delivery is effective ?
  • Would you like to become a better listener ?
  • Or to become a better project manager ?
  • Do you want to meet people and learn how to connect with them ?
  • Do you want to find a place where you can train your English by public speaking ?
  • To develop your leadership skills ?
  • To improve your presentation skills ? And much more…

Those are the fundamental skills you can learn and master in our club

Join us as guest to get started, and we’ll be happy to welcome you!

How does it work ? Regular bimonthly meetings.

THE MEETINGS

Our meetings are a combination of prepared speeches,

You can find the dates of the next meetings of our club here.

We look forward to welcoming you on board.

THE HISTORY

Toastmasters is an international organization present in over 122 countries. It all started more than 100 years ago, when people wanted to improve their speaking skills and started to gather and deliver speeches around a toast.

And that’s how: Toastmaster was born. (http://www.toastmasters.org/)

When you join our club, you are also joining a strong and close-knit network, where you will have the opportunity to go to meetings and take part in contests all over Europe and the world.  An association where people are interested in one thing, developing their public speaking skills.
