Welcome to

Famous Toastmasters Mainz

Whoop whoop!

What an energizing face-to-face meeting we had! We were 8 members and 7 guests.

Michael was a lovely Toastmaster of the Evening, leaving lots of room for interpretation of the theme Bread and Circuses.

We had two thought-provoking speeches. Heartwired by Jasmin gave us an idea for how to foster belonging. Andreea’s speech I say nothing, but actually I say a lot gave us an insight on how we tell a lot about ourselves without using words.

Russell did an excellent job with preparing witty table topics by randomly combining different types of bread with circus artists. Great participation of members and guests. Nadine started, our first time guest Burcu was brave to follow and did a GREAT job, just like our recurring guest Eric. The capstone was reached, when our guest Johannes and Daniel L. did an impro together. FANTASTIC!!!

The planned speeches were evaluated by Susana and Daniel L. Felix was our Ah-Counter, Russell served as Grammarian and Susana took the time. Nadine evaluated the overall meeting.

We welcome our new member Anna to the club and we would be happy to have Melatwork, Susana and Ngolo as our guests again some time.

Many thanks to all of you. Excellent job, everybody!

“Give them bread and circuses and they will never revolt.”

Improve Communication

Whether you are a mature manager, student, young professional, career advancer or looking to make an impact in your community, Toastmasters is the most efficient, supportive, enjoyable and affordable way of gaining great communication skills.

By learning to effectively formulate and express your ideas, you open an entirely new world of possibilities.

Build Leadership Skills

Effective leaders empower others to accomplish personal goals and contribute to the successful completion of group objectives.

Through Toastmasters, you’ll gain the practice to become the leader and speaker you want to be. You will also sharpen your management skills, become a better negotiator, gain trust and inspire your team. Learn to be decisive!


“I like the positive atmosphere in our club. We are a very diverse group of people in terms of backgrounds and culture. That continues to inspire me. Each meeting gives me energy and I always come back for more. I receive a lot of encouragement from my fellow Toastmasters on my journey to improve my speaking skills. Step by step, I can see and feel how I become a more and more confident speaker, talking in front of many people while being totally at ease. Thanks FTM now and in the future!”


“I like the stories which are shared during our meetings. I love the mixture of backgrounds, stories, experiences, and viewpoints presented here. Toastmasters is inspiring me, I feel great during the meetings and always looking forward to the next one.”


“Famous has a great supportive atmosphere. People care about each other and their projects. And last but not least – meetings are immense fun!”


“FTM has been a wonderful experience for me – meeting many new friends and learning from many cultures and nationalities. I’ve picked up many techniques for improving my speaking. I especially enjoyed the competitions and conferences. But the most rewarding experience has been mentoring and encouraging new members, watching them improve their English and become excellent speakers.”


“I really like the international atmosphere with members from all over the world. I also like the possibility to visit a lot of other Toastmasters clubs. It gives me insights that I hardly get anywhere else.”
