Welcome, you arrived to the Leiden Toastmasters Club homepage. Probably, this is because Leiden is the closest location from your home, work or educational institution. You made a good choice, as Leiden is a beautiful city with its canals and long history.
Maybe you are a student, as Leiden is the city where also our King Willem Alexander spent his University time. Maybe you come from abroad to work for a couple of years in a different country. In any case, you probably want to explore something new, learn, grow yourself and possibly also practice your English language skills. Our club consists of similar profiles, while we have native Dutch speaking members too.
Whatever your background or your age is, you are always welcome to explore, express and engage with our existing members. We have so many different profiles coming from different countries, speaking all kinds of languages, having diverse backgrounds: from personal coaches to programmers, and from business people to academics and artists. This makes our club culture truly dynamic and we are sure you will fit in as well.
Our club creates leaders and speakers, no matter if you are an introvert or an extrovert. Everyone can learn and develop such skills. Our members and alumni range from beginners giving their first public speech, up to a TEDx award-winning keynote speakers. What they all have in common is that they have a dream and they work towards achieving that dream – and so can you. The more you get surrounded with people with the same ambition and passion, the more likely the dream becomes reality.
Our club is happy to support you and therefore, we would like to warmly welcome you as a guest to let you experience what Toastmasters is about and answer any questions you may have. If you feel as comfortable and excited as our previous guests, we would love you to become a member after first three visits.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
Our meetings are on every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month at Buddha's restaurant in Leiden. We start at 20:00 sharp, therefore it is advised to come a bit earlier to make sure you reserve a good spot.
