Questions & Answers
Q: Do I need to speak at a club meeting?
A: No. You are not obliged to speak when visiting a club. You may simply be an observer, if you wish so. But we encourage you at least to introduce yourself and to give us your feedback at the end. And if you wish, you can participate in the Table Topics.
Q: Is there a leader or instructor?
A: There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. The club has elected club officers present and a Toastmaster who facilitates the meeting. By joining the club, you receive the competent communicator manual, which contains ten projects to learn and improve your public speaking skills. If you wish, you can also have an experienced member as mentor for the first three speech projects.
Q: Do I have to pay for the dinner?
A: Yes, dinner is not for free and costs around 25.- CHF. Keep in mind though that you do not only get a delicious dinner, but also one of the most beautiful locations for a toastmaster meeting, the gorgeous guild hall. Drinks are also not included.
Q: How many people will be there?
A: Normally we have about 20-30 members and guests attending our meetings. The RSVP people in Meetup are usually the guests.
